Sharon Tennyson

Journal of Consumer Affairs
Editor

Sharon Tennyson is a Professor at Cornell University in the Department of Policy Analysis and Management, and Director of the Cornell Institute for Public Affairs (CIPA).  Her primary research focus is the impact of laws and government regulations on the wellbeing of consumers in markets. Recognizing that government actions may alter firms' operations and/or consumers' decisions in markets, her work explores the effects of regulations on these behaviors and the changes in market outcomes that result.  Much of her work studies the regulation of insurance markets, but she has also written on regulation of credit cards, prescription drugs and airlines. Other research examines consumers' financial knowledge and decisions, advice provision in financial markets, and consumer fraud behavior in insurance. Dr. Tennyson is the current Editor of the Journal of Consumer Affairs, and a former President of the Risk Theory Society. She was previously an Assistant Professor in the Department of Insurance and Risk Management at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. She holds a Ph.D. in economics from Northwestern University.
