Aloha! My name is Wonbin Sohn, and I am a Ph.D. candidate at the McCombs School of Business of the University of Texas at Austin. I will be joining the Shidler College of Business of the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa as an Assistant Professor of Management starting in Fall 2023. My research has been published in academic journals including Academy of Management Annals and Journal of Management, as well as practitioner outlets such as Harvard Business Review and Behavioral Science and Policy. The HBR piece was one of the top 10 most-read HBR articles of 2020. 

I earned my B.A. in economics and political science at Swarthmore College with Phi Beta Kappa. Prior to my graduate studies, I was a proud commissioned officer of the Republic of Korea Air Force (1st Lieutenant), working at the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Air Force Operations Command (Osan Air Base). 

Outside of work, I enjoy playing golf with my wife.
