PhD Profile Body Eesha Sharma 2
After graduating Magna Cum Laude from Stern’s Undergraduate College in 2007, Eesha Sharma put her skills to work as an investment banking analyst at Goldman Sachs for a year before deciding to return to Stern to pursue her doctorate in the Marketing program.

Now embarking on her first year as an assistant professor of Marketing at Dartmouth's Tuck School of Business, Eesha finds the supportive community at Stern to be a huge contributor to her growth as a researcher. She has relied heavily on her fellow students for research feedback, motivational support, and encouragement to have fun. Equally important to Eesha is the accessibility of the faculty members, who provided a significant amount of time and guidance, regardless of whether they are your official research advisor. Eesha commented,“I’ve learned a tremendous amount from discussions in seminars, with my advisors, and with fellow students. These conversations have been about research papers and new ideas, and also about important issues like string cheese, apples and oranges, and what to eat for dinner. All of these experiences have provided me with food for thought.”

Eesha’s research interests revolve around understanding how consumers respond to states of deprivation in their own lives and in the lives of others, and more specifically, how financial deprivation influences people’s consumption and moral decisions. She currently has several papers in various stages of review at the Journal of Consumer Psychology, Journal of Consumer Research, and Journal of Marketing Research.
