His research has a particular focus on self-important goals that can be readily quantified, such as financial goals (e.g., debt repayment, savings), health goals (e.g., weight loss), and work or athletic performance goals (e.g., running a marathon). Dr. Kettle's has published research in the Journal of Marketing Research, Journal of Consumer Research, Psychological Science, and Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.
