Archana Mannem


My research philosophy is to find solutions that encourage conscious consumption choices. I use quantitative and qualitative methods such as text and sentiment analyses to inform my studies. I conduct experiments in the lab and on digital platforms such as Meta and Google Ads. In the classroom, I use a variety of applications such as Google Trends, Mentimeter, and Slido to create an experiential learning environment. My corporate experience in marketing, sales, and operations helps me relate course material with real-time scenarios, making academic content more engaging and relatable for my students.

In my free time, I like going on long-distance runs, hiking, and watching a good action or psychological thriller.
