Theresa A. Kwon

Doctoral Candidate in Marketing

Katz Graduate School of Business, University of Pittsburgh

Theresa (Tess) examines consumer behavior in the social domain, with an emphasis on shared consumption, solo and joint decision-making, and choices for self and others. Specifically, her dissertation, which won the SCP Schumann Dissertation Proposal Award in 2022, sheds light on novel factors that shape people's decisions about whether to engage in consumption activities by themselves or with others in the first place.  

Before joining Pitt, Tess earned her Ph.D. in Retail and Consumer Sciences with a minor in Statistics from University of Tennessee, and her M.S. in Fashion Marketing and B.S. in Clothing and Textiles (cum laude graduate) from Seoul National University. 

Tess will join the University of Hong Kong as an Assistant Professor of Marketing in July, 2024.
