Maria Trupia is a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Behavioral Decision Making area at the UCLA Anderson School of Management. Her research focuses on the concept of time poverty, examines its potential causes, and investigates its consequences on people’s (and consumers’) well-being and behavior. For example, how is perceived time poverty related to the use of modern technology? How do consumers perceive companies that ask them to spend money to save time? What do people think when we tell them we are busy, and how does this affect our relationship with them? Do we use time windfalls in a happiness-enhancing way? In each project, Maria employs a mix of methods—lab, online, or field experiments, eye-tracking, and longitudinal or secondary data. Her doctoral work on time poverty was the recipient of an honorable mention for the 2022 John A. Howard/AMA Award.
