Yixing Chen



Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor of Marketing at the Mendoza College of Business and a faculty affiliate of the Mike and Josie Harper Cancer Research Institute, Lucy Family Institute for Data & Society, and Eck Institute for Global Health at the University of Notre Dame.

I study social impact of marketing, with an aim to measure and improve the effectiveness of marketing interventions for social sector organizations (e.g., health care and education). I am also interested in measuring the value of data, algorithms, and choice architecture in digital markets (e.g., social media, search engine, e-commerce). My research has appeared in premier marketing and medical journals such as Journal of Marketing, Journal of Marketing Research, and Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology. My research has been supported by National Cancer Institute, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and Kemper Foundation. I won the Financial Times Responsible Business Academic Research Award, AMA-EBSCO-RRBM Award for Responsible Research in Marketing (2023 Distinguished Winner), John A. Howard/AMA Doctoral Dissertation Award (acceptance speech), University of New Mexico Inspirational Young Alumnus Award, Texas A&M Distinguished Dissertation Award, and Grow the Good in Business Faculty Research Award at Mendoza College of Business. My research has also been selected as a finalist for prestigious best paper awards such as the AMA-EBSCO-RRBM Award for Responsible Research in Marketing (2022), Paul E. Green Award (2021), and AMA/Marketing Science Institute/H. Paul Root Award (2018 and 2020).

At Notre Dame, I teach Marketing Analytics in the undergraduate and MBA programs. I have been recognized as one of 2023 Poets&Quants Best 40-Under-40 MBA Professors Worldwide. During my doctoral studies, I have taught Marketing Analytics to the undergraduate students at the Mays Business School, winning the Dean’s Award for Outstanding Teaching.
