His research interests lie at the intersection of industrial organization and quantitative marketing. He has conducted empirical studies on the formation of consumer preferences for branded goods, price discrimination, advertising, food deserts and nutrition policy, and the role of misinformation in consumer demand. This empirical focus is also reflected in his MBA course on pricing strategies, which is designed to teach students how to apply marketing models and analytics to develop pricing strategies in practice. Several of his recent research projects are in collaboration with companies in the United States and in China.
Dubé’s work has been published in the American Economic Review, Econometrica, the Journal of Marketing Research, the Journal of Political Economy, Management Science, Marketing Science, Quantitative Marketing and Economics, the Quarterly Journal of Economics, and the Rand Journal of Economics. He is an area/associate editor for the Journal of Marketing Research, Management Science, Marketing Science, and Quantitative Marketing and Economics.
