Marketing, consumer behavior, judgment and decision making
Time in the Consumer Mind
Ellie J. Kyung is an Associate Professor in the Marketing area at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth. Professor Kyung’s research focuses on how memory (how people think about the past) and mental representation (how people think in the present) influence consumer decisions and behavior. For example, how does the way in which people are asked about past events influence when they feel they occurred and how they might blame the corporations or parties involved? How does the way in which consumers are asked about prices they have encountered in the past influence their price memory? How does the way in which consumers are asked about their past behavior influence the likelihood they will disclose information? In particular, she is focused on issues that have implications for the design of surveys, interfaces, and communication for marketers and policy makers.
She teaches the MBA core marketing course and an elective research-to-practice seminar, “Time in the Consumer Mind,” on how the psychology of time influences consumer decision making.
