Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior,
Scheller College of Business, Georgia Institute of Technology
Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior at the
Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business.
My research program focuses on (a) employee voice and proactivity and
(b) social class and status dynamics. Specifically, I seek to understand:
Why organizations don’t reward employees for speaking up, what prevents employees from speaking up, and how employees can stay proactive at work.
How social class and status dynamics affect people’s experiences and behaviors in the workplace.
My research appears in outlets such as the Journal of Applied Psychology, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, and Harvard Business Review, and has won the SIOP S. Rains Wallace Dissertation Award and the Academy of Management Best Paper Award. I adopt a multi-method approach in my research, utilizing field surveys, experiments, qualitative interviews, and archival data.
I have conducted research with organizations across a variety of industries, including technology, hospitality, retail, engineering, and consulting. In my collaborations, I thrive to deliver actionable insight and customized solutions
based on established research and scientific evidence.
I earned my PhD in Organizational Behavior and Human Resource Management at the University of Maryland, Robert H. Smith School of Business and my BBA and MS in Business Administration at Yonsei University.
Prior to pursuing an academic career, I worked across different industries, including financial analysis and management consulting in Korea and Singapore.
