Department of Applied Economics |  HEC Montréal


I am currently an Assistant Professor of Economics at HEC Montréal, the University of Montreal affiliated business school in Canada.
Starting this summer, I will be joining the Department of Marketing, Business Economics & Law (MBEL) in the Alberta School of Business at the University of Alberta as an Assistant Professor of Business Economics & International Business.

My fields of specialization are International Economics and Macroeconomics, and their intersection with Corporate Finance and International Business. My research uses a combination of micro-level data and structural models to understand shock propagation mechanisms and network spillovers, with a particular emphasis on the role played by firms. I am also interested in understanding global supply chain formation and reorganization, multinational activities, and their interactions with various economic factors.

I received Ph.D. and M.A. in Economics from Columbia University, and received B.A. in Economics from Seoul National University with the presidential award for graduating first in class

*I was on parental leave in January-February 2021 and August-December 2022 for my second and third child, respectively.
