Eesha Sharma

Assistant Professor of Business Administration


Eesha Sharma has a background in finance and marketing and is Assistant Professor of Business Administration at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.

Professor Sharma’s research revolves around consumer financial wellbeing, and how social psychology and marketing can be used to understand and improve it. She is particularly interested in how people react to scarcity and deprivation—both in their own lives and in the lives of others. Using a combination of behavioral experiments and field studies, she examines topics such as: how people behave when they feel poor, why people give to charity, and what factors alleviate feelings of deprivation.
