Jiyin Cao received her Ph.D. from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. Before joining CUHK-Shenzhen, she was a tenured Associate Professor at Stony Brook University. Her research sits at the intersection of decision-making, social network, culture, and technology. Her research aims to answer two questions: 1. How do socio-cultural factors (e.g. culture, social networks, social hierarchy, diversity, mobility) influence the way that individuals navigate through their social environments, build trust, and make decisions? 2. How do people interact with technology (e.g. AI, machine, social media)? Her work has appeared in leading academic journals such as Academy of Management Journal, Organizational Science, Psychological Science, Social Psychology and Personality Science, and Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes.
