Expert Background

Payne's research focuses on consumer behavior, especially as it pertains to nutrition and food-buying habits. He has studied how small modifications to shopping carts affect how consumers buy fruits and vegetables. He's also examined how policy decisions like implementing a junk food tax might change buying habits and how restricted food packaging like 100-calorie snack packs can actually result in overconsumption. Another study looked at sustainable changes to the grocery store environment that will encourage healthier food-buying habits in Mexican-American families.
