Paul College 309

Inchan Kim is an assistant professor of Decision Sciences at Paul College of Business and Economics. He earned his Ph.D. in MIS from the University of Oklahoma and an M.S. in Business Administration from Yonsei University. His research primarily examines macro-level IT phenomena through cognitive theoretical lenses—namely, schemas, frames, organizing visions, and institutional logics—by using diverse analytical techniques such as grounded theory, content analysis, text mining, data visualization, time-series, vector autoregression, and qualitative comparative analysis (QCA). Inchan’s specific research interests lie in how social media and big data impact society and organizations and how IT innovations are diffused, implemented, and assimilated. Inchan’s research has appeared in MIS Quarterly and in International Journal of Information Management as well as at prestigious international conferences, including International Conference on Information Systems (ICIS) and Academy of Management Meeting (AoM). He is a participant of the 2013 ICIS Doctoral Consortium and is a recipient of two research grants from the Energy Institute at the University of Oklahoma.
