Ph.D. Candidate (ABD) | Quantitative Marketing

Drexel University, PA

I'm Mithila (mee·thee·luh), currently a Ph.D. candidate (ABD) in Quantitative Marketing with a minor in Computer Science at Drexel University. I am set to graduate in June 2023 and am thrilled to begin the next chapter of my academic journey. In Fall 2023, I will be joining the Department of Marketing and Business Analytics at San José State University as a tenure-track Assistant Professor.

I'm an empirical quantitative marketing researcher with a focus on the intersection of marketing and data analytics. I analyze social media datasets using applied econometric modeling, text analytics, and machine learning to investigate firms' strategies for online activism and purpose-driven social media campaigns. My research interests include digital and social media marketing, brand management, and text analytics.


I received the Best In Track Award at the 2022 Summer AMA for my research on the Digital & Social Media Marketing Track, which has been featured on Drexel University's Graduate College Website.
