I am an assistant professor of marketing at Indiana University's Kelley School of Business, where I teach Digital Marketing and Consumer Research. In my research, I examine how two ubiquitous experiences in people's lives--social relationships and time--influence consumer behavior and wellbeing.
Get Paid to Participate in Couples Research
Have your voice heard! My colleague, Jenny Olson, and I recently received funding to start a paid research panel for couples at Indiana University.
Our goal is to establish a diverse and inclusive panel of romantic couples in terms of marital status, sexuality, gender, race, socioeconomic status, disability, age, etc. to help inform our research.
Stay tuned in the coming months for details on how to participate (and how to get paid to do so).

Interabled Couples in the Marketplace. Adriana Samper, Terri Hlava, and I are starting a research investigation of interabled couples in the marketplace, with the aim of working with the disability community to raise awareness about the misperceptions and challenges that interabled and disabled couples face in the marketplace and to identify and promote solutions for greater accessibility and equity.
