She is the recipient of the Emil H. Steiger Distinguished Teaching Award in 2008 and the Lawrence J. Larson Excellence in Teaching Award in 2005. She has also been the recipient of six other teaching awards.

Peck researches haptics (the sense of touch), specifically as it relates to a shopper’s motivation to touch a product when shopping. She also examines the interactions between an individual difference in motivation to touch (desire to touch), product category differences in whether touch is important, and situational differences that encourage or discourage touch, such as point of purchase signs or online shopping. Additionally, she researches e-commerce boundaries, attitude theory, typicality, and categorization.

Peck holds a Ph.D. in business administration from the University of Minnesota.
