Hyoryung Nam joins the Marketing department in the Wittman School of Management as a tenure-track assistant professor of Marketing in fall 2020.

Prior to joining Syracuse University, Nam was an assistant professor at the University of Washington, Bothell (2015-2020) and Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands (2012-2015), where she taught various classes on social media, social media analytics, digital marketing, and marketing research. She advised student teams for Google Online Marketing Challenge (GOMC) and one of her student teams was elected as the semi-finalist of GOMC.

Nam’s research focuses on digital marketing strategy in a data-rich environment, such as the informational value of User-Generated-Content (UGC), online promotion and targeting, and crowd-powered innovation. Nam’s doctoral dissertation and two publications in the Journal of Marketing focus on understanding the informational value of user-generated hashtags. Her publication, Informational Value of Social Tagging Networks” was elected as the winner of the prestigious MSI/H. Paul Root Award (2015) and the finalist of the Sheth Foundation/Journal of Marketing Award (2019). Another stream of her research looks at creativity and innovation in a social setting. Her publication in the Journal of Marketing, “Tournaments to Crowdsource Innovation: The Role of Moderator Feedback and Participation Intensity,” explores the drivers and consequences of customer engagement in the crowdsourcing innovation platform.

Nam was a recipient of the Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowship granted by the European Union (Approximately $241,084). Nam serves as a member of the Editorial Review Board of the International Journal of Research in Marketing (IJRM) and as an ad-hoc reviewer of the Journal of Marketing, Journal of Marketing Research, Production and Operations Management Society (POMS), and Journal of Interactive Marketing.
