ABOUT ME

I am a PhD Candidate in the Strategic Management and Entrepreneurship department at the Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota.

My broad research interests lie at the nexus of non-market strategy and international business. Specifically, my current research explains how various institutional levels influence corporate environmental performance in which externalities often span the boundary of those institutions. In this stream of research, 

I have published a co-authored paper at Strategic Management Journal that examines the impact of environmental standards on US firm's sourcing decisions.

My dissertation research explores the nexus of ownership and local community in the context of firm environmental outcomes, also highlighting the implications of the varying scopes of environmental externalities of different types of pollutants.  


Before joining the Carlson School in 2017, I worked for intergovernmental organizations in Washington DC and Geneva, promoting Public-Private Partnerships for infrastructure development in various fields. Most recently, I worked at the Inter-American Investment Corporation where I focused on developing and executing projects to help the small and medium size companies in the Latin and Caribbean countries to invest in energy efficiency projects. 


I received a MSc in Energy and Climate Change from the Johns Hopkin University (US), a MA in international affairs from Institut de hautes études internationales et du développement (Switzerland) and a BA in Business from the Seoul National University (South Korea).
