I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Management at Mays Business School, Texas A&M University. 

I study networks, social categories, and inequalities therein. More specifically, I am interested in how people from disadvantaged social categories, such as novices and gender/racial/ethnic minorities, manage their networks and work identities to overcome the predicaments they face in their "entrepreneurial" careerslike the careers of creative workers, service professionals, corporate directors, and, of course, those in academia. In my research, I draw on both archival field data and controlled experiments. 

I was previously at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, and got my Ph.D. in Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD. Before that, I studied for BE & BBA, and MS at Korea University. 

My name in Korean is 이용훈, pronounced as "YO-ONG-WHO-EN" (IPA: /ˈjoʊŋhuːn/).
