Overview Professor Jang’s primary research interests are focused on the relations between physical elements (i.e. location, color, presentation order, and presentation mode) and consumers’ responses in marketing communication context (i.e., advertisement). Specifically, she tries to explore the different consequences depending on manipulated experimental condition of physical elements in advertisement even though consumers face the identical information. In this context she is also focused on the psychological mechanism to provide the explanation, that is, the reason why consumers show different responses in this process. Most recently she got engaged in studying the cultural difference between Westerner and Easterner and try to examine why consumers show difference responses across the different culture as well as how they might be different each other.

For the academic research, the kinds of questions that Professor Jang explores in her research include: What counts as effective elements in marketing communication including online and offline advertisement? How is this positioned in marketing theories and practices? She continues to nourish her interest in marketing communication. Particularly she is looking for the notable and contributable effect both for academic researcher as well as marketing managers
