Personal profile

Research interests

Anne-Kathrin Klesse obtained her PhD from Maastricht University and then worked at Tilburg University as an Assistant Professor in Marketing. In October 2016, she joined Rotterdam School of Management, Erasmus University. She frequently spent time at Stanford Graduate School of Business as a visiting scholar. 

In her research, Anne-Kathrin studies consumer judgement and decision making, with a specific focus on how technology augments human behavior. In one stream of research, she explores whether different device interfaces (e.g., voice-operated versus touch-, or click-operated) prompt different decisions. In another stream, she focuses on understanding human lay beliefs and behavior related to algorithms, AI, and GenAI. Because of the later, she has been invited to become the academic director of the Psychology of AI lab at the Erasmus Centre for Data Analytics (ECDA).

Her research has been awarded with the prestigious VENI grant (by NWO) and was published in leading Marketing journals, such as Journal of Consumer Research (JCR), Journal of Marketing Research (JMR), and Journal of Marketing (JM). 

Anne-Kathrin currently serves at the Editorial Review Board for the International Journal of Research in Marketing (IJRM) and JM. 

She is the PhD program coordinator of her department, coordinates the Behavioral Experts track in the (International) Business Administration Bachelor's programme (BA/IBA), and teaches a module on Technology-Augmented Behavior.
