Prof. Sanghoon Hoonie Kang joined The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) Business School as an Assistant Professor of Management in August 2021. He teaches courses entitled “Introduction to Management” and “Global Experiential Learning II”.
Prof. Kang’s research concentrates on conditions that may facilitate or hinder people to make sound decisions. Specifically, he examines how experts’ ego detrimentally impacts their judgments and explores their tendencies to become more overconfident when challenged as part of bolstering their abilities to generate better predictions. Additionally, he also investigates how algorithmic information impacts people’s perception, biasedness, and behaviors. Prof. Kang has published his research in several of the leading management, psychology, and negotiation journals, including the Academy of Management Journal, Group Decision and Negotiation, and Journal of Behavioral Addictions.
Prof. Kang received a BA in Economics from Yonsei University; a MS in Management from Yonsei School of Business; and a PhD in Management from Rutgers Business School.
