SCP Fellow, 2013: 
“Aradhna’s scientific contributions are broad, programmatic, and interdisciplinary. One signature aspect of her work is that she has repeatedly initiated new lines of inquiry that grew into large and active domains of research, bringing together researchers from different fields and traditions. An excellent recent example is her work on sensory marketing, which brought together disparate work on the senses (conducted by researchers in psychology, physiology, biology, arts, and advertising) and channeled it into a rigorous field of consumer research. Aradhna is an outstanding consumer psychologist who has made novel and important contributions to consumer psychology as a science. The Society of Consumer Psychology is pleased to name her as an SCP Fellow, our organization’s highest honor.” (
