Yuna Cho

I am a Ph.D. candidate in Management at Yale University. I will be joining the University of Hong Kong (HKU) Business School as an assistant professor in Summer 2021.

My primary research interests include relationships at work, work motivation, careers, and human resource management. My research takes a relational perspective to understanding the nature of work, focusing on the ways in which individuals are embedded in social contexts in their working lives. I examine how employees shape, and are shaped by, their interactions and relationships with others in the workplace, affecting important outcomes in their work and careers. The majority of my research projects are multi-method longitudinal studies, employing archival data, surveys, interviews, and experiments both in the field and the lab.

Prior to my doctoral studies, I worked in strategy consulting and investment management. I received my M.B.A. from the Wharton School at University of Pennsylvania, and my B.A. in Economics from Seoul National University, Korea. You can find my CV here.
