Kelley Gullo

Marketing PhD Candidate, Duke University


I am currently a Marketing Ph.D. Candidate, specializing in consumer behavior, at Duke University's Fuqua School of Business. Prior to joining the doctoral program at Duke, I received my BS in marketing and BS in economics from Arizona State University.

In Fall 2020, I will be joining the marketing faculty at Indiana University's Kelley School of Business.

In my research, I examine how prevalent relational, temporal, and emotional aspects of consumers’ lives affect their consumption choices. Personal relationships develop over time and through emotions, creating a unique nexus of research opportunities that I investigate in a range of projects.
