Associate Professor Jason Ho's keen interest in action movies and comic books is evident in his research, which focuses on entertainment marketing and viral marketing. He enjoys applying mathematical and statistical methods to assess marketing programs' sales and demand patterns in order to improve profits. Recently, he developed an automated demand-scheduler for multiplex movie theatres to optimize how they schedule their movies in order to improve revenues.
