Dr Janet Geipel

Lecturer in Consumer Behaviour and Decision Making

Not Known


In 2021, I joined the Department of Management at the University of Exeter Business School. Before that, I completed my postdoctoral training at the University of Chicago. In my research, I focus on the interplay between language, thinking, and decision-making in domains such as sustainability, health, and ethicality.

My work is published in leading journals including Nature Sustainability, Journal of International Business Studies (ABS4*), Cognition (ABS4), Journal of Experimental Social Psychology (ABS4), Risk Analysis (ABS4), Journal of Experimental Psychology: Applied (ABS4)and Journal of Experimental Psychology: General (ABS4).
