Hyunjin Kim

I am a doctoral candidate in Strategy at Harvard Business School. My research explores how the increasing availability of data in the digital economy shapes firm strategy and the nature of market competition. I use field experiments and empirical analyses leveraging econometric methods and machine learning. For this work, I collaborate closely with Fortune 500 companies as well as small tech startups.

I earned my A.B. in Social Studies at Harvard College, and also received a M.Sc in Environmental Change and Management at the University of Oxford and a M.Sc in Economics and Management at the London School of Economics. Prior to my graduate studies, I co-founded and directed the Emerge Venture Lab, an early-stage venture capital fund for technology startups working on social and environmental issues. I have also worked at McKinsey & Company and Knewton.
