I am an Assistant Professor in the Management and Strategy area at the University of Hong Kong (HKU) Business School.
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.

I received my Ph.D. in Management from Yale University. I also earned an M.B.A. from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and a B.A. in Economics from Seoul National University, Korea. Prior to a career in academia, I worked in strategy consulting and investment management. You can find my CV here.
