Professor Kim’s research seeks to understand the economic decisions made by the users and producers of financial information, with a particular focus on how they shape various aspects of financial reporting. Much of her research features theories from information economics, and her research approach is to combine these theories to formulate empirical predictions that are difficult to intuit in the absence of theoretical foundations. Professor Kim’s recent works include theoretically motivated empirical studies on topics related to financial reporting, voluntary disclosure, information, reporting incentives, and capital markets.
Professor Kim joined Kellogg in 2022. She holds a PhD in Accounting from the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, and a dual Bachelor’s degree in Business and in Economics from Seoul National University.
