I am Kylie Jiwon Hwang, a PhD Candidate in Management at Columbia Business School.

My research interests lie in the area of entrepreneurship, labor markets, and discrimination & incarceration. For my dissertation on entrepreneurship and formerly incarcerated individuals, I was awarded the 2018 Kauffman Knowledge Challenge Grant.

I am working on projects with Damon Phillips, Dan Wang, and Evan Rawley.

You can find my CV here.

I was born in London and attended schools in New York, Washington DC, Seoul (Korea), and Riyadh (Saudi Arabia). I like to travel, re-read the Harry Potter series, and spend time with my family & friends. I am also a big fan of Pilates.
