Sunny (Sun Young) Lee
I am an Associate Professor of Organizational Behavior at the UCL School of Management.
I earned a B.A. in English language and literature from the Seoul National University, a Master of Public Policy from the University of Chicago, and a Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior from the London Business School. Before I started my Ph.D. program, I worked at Accenture as business analyst and at Hewlett Packard as marketing program manager.
Going beyond the question of whether men and women are treated differently in the workplace, I have examined whether men and women might respond differently to the same work events such as workplace competition, failures, rejections, and networking.
For the second stream of my research, I have mainly looked at how evaluators’ stereotyping based on a person’s race, age, and appearance can bias their recruitment or promotion decisions. I also have looked at how the expected relationship between the evaluator and the job candidate might lead to suboptimal personnel decisions to the organization.
My work has been published in international academic journals such as Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Discoveries, Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes, Journal of Applied Psychology, Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, etc.
