Professor Baumgartner's research interests are in the areas of consumer behavior and research methodology. Substantively, his research is concerned with how consumers form judgments about objects and events and how these judgments influence actual behavior. Methodologically, his research has focused on the use of structural equation modeling in marketing, survey research, and citation analysis.
