Great news from the SJDM (Society for Judgment and Decision Making) conference!

MKT PhD student Jennifer Lee’s poster (“Being Unique Makes Us Similar? When Customized Example Designs Motivate Expressions of Uniqueness”) was selected as the best student poster of this year’s SJDM Meeting.

As some of you may know, SJDM takes posters very seriously with many faculty members presenting posters, not just students. Hence, they had 369 poster presentations in total!

Only student posters are eligible for this prize and are judged based on the actual poster submitted prior to the conference as well as by judges visiting the poster presentation and talking to the presenter during the poster session.

This year there were three honorable mentions, a 2nd prize, and a first prize presented. 

Attached is a photo of Jennifer (1st prize) with two of the honorable mentions winners (Kristen Duke and Allie Lieberman, both On Amir’s students at UCSD, so strong SoCal representation here).

Very proud of Jennifer and her representation of the Ph.D. program (to the best of our knowledge this is a first for our program at JDM and maybe even for USC in general).

Please join us in congratulating Jennifer on her award (a certificate and $750!)!
