Dr. Mahan's general research interests lie in the area of sport consumer psychology and fall into two separate yet related streams: the effectiveness of sport marketing communications and the use of digital social media in sport marketing. The research within both of these areas employs both survey and experimental design and each endeavor draws upon established theory from such disciplines as marketing, psychology, and communication (mass media).

1) Effectiveness of Sport Marketing Communications - Included among the different approaches to gaining insight into how and why consumers attend and/or watch sport are examination of marketing communications (e.g., advertisements), building fan profiles, and evaluation of sponsorship initiatives. Understanding the psychology behind consumer processing of, and response to, such phenomena can aid in development, targeting, and implementation of sport marketing communications.

2) Digital Social Media and Sport Marketing - The incorporation of digital media platforms into sport marketing strategy is becoming more and more popular. Despite the proliferation of such platforms (e.g., Twitter and You Tube), however, little is known as to how and why (or why not) consumers respond to such tactics. Therefore, further investigation into the use of new media by sport marketers could have utility in design and execution of marketing strategy in the 21 st Century.
