My research interests are eclectic and diverse.  My primary research interests are in signaling as a way of alleviating asymmetry in the marketplace.  However, because of my background in statistics and research methods I’ve done work in a number of diverse areas from hybrid cars to counterfeit goods.

To date I’ve presented my work at the following conferences: the American Marketing Association Annual Winter Educator’s Conference, Informs Marketing Science Conference, the Academy of International Business Annual Meeting, the American Marketing Association Public Policy Conference, the Association of Consumer Research Annual Meeting, and the Society of Consumer Psychology Annual Meeting.  I’ve posted slides from prior presentations in the subsections of this research page.
