Hyejin Youn



I am an assistant professor at Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, and Northwestern Institute on Complex Systems (NICO). I was a research fellow at Santa Fe Institute and Harvard Kennedy School, and visiting scientist at MIT Media Lab. Before that, I was a senior research fellow at Mathematical Institute at University of Oxford, and Institute for New Economic Thinking; and ran a National Science Foundation grant (USA) to study Technological Change. PhD is in Physics at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology.

My research aims to develop a mathematical and computational framework to understand complex systems, mostly socio-economic systems. These include science of cities, technological change, and semantic cognition. Details can be found: http://hyoun.me/
