Stacey Finkelstein Associate Professor Marketing College of Business


Dr. Stacey Finkelstein is an expert in demonstrating how the environment impacts eating behavior. She has shown that food labeled as "healthy," "low fat," orĀ  "diet" makes people feel hungrier and thus leads them to eat more. She has also explored when people give negative feedback, when they want to get negative feedback, and how they respond to negative feedback. She is also an expert in understanding how people make medical decisions such as when to see their doctor, when to schedule medical appointments, and what emotions people feel when vaccinating their children.
