Soonchul Hyun is a doctoral candidate at the Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary. She holds a Master of Business Administration with accounting concentration from Kyungpook National University, South Korea and a Master of Science in Accounting from the University of Texas at Dallas. Her experience includes working as a lecturer at Kyungpook National University and other universities in South Korea. Her primary research focus is innovation activities and firm value. Her dissertation examines whether firms’ long-term innovation activities can be connected to financial performance through intermediate performance measures – product quality, productivity, and customer satisfaction. It specifically explores how the links from different types of innovation to financial performance depend on the strategic focus of the organization. She also plans to develop frontier-based measures of innovation ability for various types of innovation activities and investigate whether the measures are useful for evaluating intangible asset value.
