Kelley Gullo

Marketing PhD Candidate, Duke University, Fuqua School of Business

More

Kelley Gullo is a marketing Ph.D. candidate at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business. In her research, she explores how three prevalent factors in consumers’ lives—close relationships, time, and emotions—intersect to influence consumers’ decisions and behavior. Recent projects have examined how time of day shapes people’s variety-seeking behavior and how making an initial choice for a close other (e.g., one’s child) can later impact one’s own choices. Her research has been published the Journal of Consumer Research, a leading marketing journal. Prior to joining the marketing program at Duke, Kelley received her BS in Marketing and BS in Economics from Arizona State University.
