Personal profile

Biography

 

I am a senior lecturer in Operations and Supply Chain Management as well as an associate course director for BA in European Business Management and a U/G dissertation coordinator at Coventry University. My teaching is in the area of international logistics. In addition, I am supervising dissertations at U/G, master and PhD levels.

I studied BA in Economics at Seoul National University, South Korea. Before starting my postgraduate study at Cardiff Business School in the UK, I had worked in the global shipping industry for four years as a legal advisor, claim handler and key account manager. In 2011 and 2015, I was awarded ‘the master logistics dissertation of the year’ and ‘James Cooper Memorial Cup (the best PhD dissertation award)’ from the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), UK. My PhD thesis has investigated international logistics risks management by mixed methods to analyse logistics risks and to various generate risk mitigating strategies.

As an early career researcher, I have published several research papers in leading academic journals and more than 10 conference papers. My current research interests focus on the mechanisms behind strategic decisions of firms involved in international logistics, encompassing risk management and collaboration.
