STACEY R. FINKELSTEIN
is an Assistant Professor of Marketing at Zicklin College of Business, Baruch College, City University New York. She received her PhD and MBA from the University of Chicago, Booth School of Business (2011). Broadly speaking, she conducts research on consumer welfare. In one line of work, she focuses on processes related to self-regulation – how individuals prioritize short term goals (e.g., eating tasty food; wasting resources) and long-term goals (e.g., eating healthy; conserving resources). For instance, she has explored when healthy food labels make people hungry (Finkelstein & Fishbach, 2010), when negative feedback is motivating as a function of expertise (Finkelstein & Fishbach, 2012), and how relationship depth impacts the provision of negative feedback (Finkelstein, Fishbach, & Tu, under review). She has also explored how risk attitudes impact medical appointment scheduling behavior (Liu et al., under review; Finkelstein et al., under review) and the impact of choice architecture on consumer’s savings, organ donation, eating, and shopping decisions (McKenzie, Liersch, & Finkelstein, 2006; Cravener et al., 2015; Newman, Finkelstein, & Cho, in progress). She is currently on the Editorial Review Board of the Journal of Consumer Research and the Journal of Public Policy and Marketing.
