  • Associate Professor
  • UCL School of Management
  • Faculty of Engineering Science

I work as an associate professor of organizational behavior(OB) and the head of diversity at the UCL School of Management. I earned a B.A. in English Literature from the Seoul National University, a M.P.P. from the University of Chicago, and a Ph.D. in OB from the London Business School. Before entering academia, I worked as a consultant at Accenture, LG Ad, and Hewlett Packard for about several years.

Since I joined the School in 2014, I have taught negotiation courses to broad audience including masters and MBAs at UCL, Peking University, London Business School and Met Police Officers. As the Athena SWAN lead and the head of diversity at the School, I am committed to making our School a diverse and  positive place where talents can thrive, and people feel happy and included.

Research Summary

My research focuses largely on two topics: gender differences in the workplace; and biases in organizational decision making. I hope to contribute the ethos of diversity and fairness through my research. First, I have examined whether and why men and women react differently to the same work events such as workplace competition, negotiations, networking, and failures. For the second stream of my research, I have mainly looked at how evaluators’ stereotypical beliefs and selfish motives can bias their recruitment or promotion decisions. 

My work has been published in prestigious academic journals such as Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Discoveries, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, etc. My research has been also featured by BBC Radio, ITV, The Financial Times, The Guardian, and other global media outlets.
