Bio

Eric Schwartz is an Associate Professor of Marketing (with tenure) at the Stephen M. Ross School of Business at the University of Michigan. Professor Schwartz's expertise focuses on predicting customer behavior, understanding its drivers, and examining how firms actively acquire customers and manage their relationships through interactive marketing experiments and adaptive data collection. His current projects aim to optimize firms' A/B testing and adaptive marketing experiments using a multi-armed bandit framework, often working with companies and organizations. His broader research in customer analytics stretches across managerial applications, including online experiments, online advertising, dynamic pricing, native advertising, streaming video binge viewing, and word-of-mouth. The quantitative methods he uses are primarily machine learning, active learning, Bayesian statistics, and field experiments. Applying those same methods elsewhere, he also works on public policy problems focused on health and safety. His work has been recognized with awards, including ISMS John D. C. Little Best Paper, ISMS Doctoral Dissertation Proposal Competition Winner, and KDD Applied Data Science Best Student Paper. He is a member of the Editorial Review Board of INFORMS journal, Marketing Science. At Ross, he was the Arnold M. and Linda T. Jacob Faculty Fellow 2018-19. Before joining the Michigan Ross faculty in 2013, Professor Schwartz earned his Ph.D. in Marketing from the Wharton School and a B.A. in Mathematics and Hispanic Studies, all from the University of Pennsylvania.
