Dr. Shim's research highlights that firms have diverse political backgrounds, and they leverage that against investment risks. He applies formal theory and implements quantitative analysis of firm-level datasets to study how multinational corporations handle political risks such as the host government's policy changes, armed conflicts, social protests, and investment screening. His research agenda also aims to explore the impact of global supply chains on de-coupling and re-coupling among East Asian Countries and the United States, and nationalism in social media. His research articles have appeared in the Journal of Politics, the Korean Journal of Area Studies, and the Journal of International Politics.
