Visiting Faculty Fellow
Research Talks

Visiting Faculty Fellow Research TalksThese events showcase the cutting-edge research of the Kilts Center’s visiting faculty fellows. In line with our integrative, multidisciplinary approach to marketing, we invite fellows from a wide range of fields, including behavioral science, economics, and cognitive psychology. The Kilts Center has hosted more than a dozen visiting faculty fellows and past talks have covered the evolution of consumer expertise, the emergence and impact of e-commerce, and the intersection of quantitative marketing and empirical industrial organization.

Visiting Faculty Fellow Research Talks offer faculty and PhD students a first look at what top researchers are working on, new insights they can apply to their own work, and a chance to pose their marketing and research questions to experts in the field. The event is also an excellent opportunity to network with fellow researchers for future collaborative projects.

Rima Touré-Tillery

Associate Professor of Marketing, Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management

Rima Touré-Tillery is an associate professor of marketing at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. She holds a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, an MBA from the University of Notre Dame, and has prior professional experience in the commercial lending industry as a financial analyst, marketing manager, and marketing director.

Professor Touré-Tillery studies the role of the self in motivation. Her research examines the processes through which people’s thoughts and ideas about themselves (i.e., self-concept) influence their tendency to engage in virtuous behaviors such as giving money to charity, eating healthy foods, taking steps to protect themselves from diseases, or refraining from cheating. She uses experimental and survey methods in laboratory, online, and field settings to investigate behaviors that have practical implications for marketers, managers, educators, public policymakers, and consumers themselves.

Professor Touré-Tillery’s work has produced peer-reviewed articles in top marketing and psychology journals such as the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the Journal of Consumer Research, the Journal of Marketing, and the Journal of Experimental Psychology: General. Additionally, her research findings have been featured by several major media outlets including The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, The Hill, The New Yorker, and Chicago Magazine.
