Uris Hall, 5V
I am a PhD candidate in Marketing at the Graduate School of Business, Columbia University. Prior to joining Columbia, I worked as a market research analyst and sales manager for an agricultural equipment company in the US.
My research primarily examines the underlying psychological processes and meanings of consumption experiences, with a focus on conceptualizing and investigating having fun in consumers' lives. Broadly, I'm interested in clarifying discrete psychological concepts related to consumer fun and how those constructs impact (1) subsequent consumer judgment and behavior and (2) creativity.
Another related, yet distinct, line of my research interests is how consumers perceive brands, and how those brand perceptions influence subsequent brand preference and usage. I investigate this empirically by analyzing a large scale panel data set that covers thousands of brands in the market for twenty years.
