Alixandra Barasch

Assistant Professor
Marketing Department
NYU Stern School of Business
United States of America


Professor Barasch’s research examines social aspects of consumption, such as the implications of focusing on oneself versus others, judgments and inferences about others and decisions to share information or resources. One stream of her research explores prosocial behaviors that help us signal our virtue to ourselves and others. In this set of projects, Professor Barasch studies both what motivates people to perform good deeds and how we perceive the motivations of prosocial actors. A second stream of her research investigates how people decide what and when to share with others. In this line of inquiry, she investigates the social motivations and other goals underlying people’s photo-taking behaviors and transmission of information via word-of-mouth. Her research has been published in leading marketing and psychology journals such as the Journal of Consumer Research , Journal of Marketing Research and the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.
