Morgan Poor received her PhD in marketing from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University in May 2012. In SBA, Poor teaches introduction to advertising and promotion to undergraduate students. She also serves as a faculty advisor to the SBA Ad Club and the SBA Women's International Business Network. Her research, which has been published in the Journal of Marketing and the Journal of Consumer Psychology, focuses broadly in the area of consumer behavior, and more specifically in the areas of sensory marketing, satiation and self-control. Her main stream of research examines the use of images in marketing communications, both firm generated and consumer generated and factors that influence how these images affect important consumption outcomes. She also explores how factors such as emotional frames, message frames and preference (in)consistent information, shape the consumption experience and influence outcomes related to satiation and self-control.
