Dr Yoon is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Social Impact (CSI) at the College of Business, Government, and Law, Flinders University. She combines her lived experience as a mother of a child with complex disabilities with her research knowledge and skills to understand the context of disability, business management, and socio-economic engagement opportunities to promote the quality of life and socially valued roles for people with disability.

Jung has focused on building safe, accessible, inclusive, and innovative working environments to enable socio-economic inclusion for people with cognitive disability, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and intellectual and mental disabilities. She also supports cross-cultural research projects between Australia and South Korea by building project concepts and connecting to project relevant bodies in South Korea.

Jung’s research interests include socio-cultural impact in creative industries, disability employment, social enterprise management, inclusive corporate culture in a broad workforce, and social and disability-related policies under the jurisdiction of other countries.

Currently, Jung is a project manager for the Diversity Pathways, an action research project co-designed with people with cognitive disability, disability employment and policy experts, industry partners and employers in the hospitality and retail businesses to improve employers’ capacity to create inclusive working environment for people with and without cognitive disability in hospitality and retail industries.
