Shawn Kim

Name: Shawn Kim (he/him)

Discipline: Accounting

Degrees: Ph.D. in Accounting, University of Pennsylvania, 2023; B.Sc. in Economics, University of Pennsylvania, 2018

Research interests: My research interests are focused on ESG disclosure, governance and incentives, and voluntary disclosure. I am primarily interested in how companies strategically disclose their environmental performance and initiatives and how various stakeholders hold companies accountable for the disclosure and greenwashing behaviors.

Fun fact: I love to play tennis and have begun to learn the art of Texas-style barbecue.
