FIELDS OF RESEARCH

 

Main: International Trade and Multinational Enterprises

 

Topic [1]: Firm Dynamics and Resources Allocations in Korea.

 

Topic [2]: Trade and Investment of Korean Firms in Global Value Chain.

 

Under the topics, there are several works in progress.

 

Firm and Plant datasets I am using for the works are those that are accessible only after the official approval of Statistics Korea and the Korea Statistics Promotion Institute. All the results in my previous works have been reviewed by them to ensure that no confidential information is disclosed. (I believe this is a necessary step to follow, not just because we must keep the credibility of research at a high level but also because we should contribute to a historical continuation of empirical research in Economics and a further development of the literature based on collective efforts.)
