He completed his studies in 2008 and, after a year as Visiting Assistant Professor at the HKUST, joined the Judge.
Vincent's academic research covers pricing, competitive strategies, strategic consumer behaviour, game theory, and experimental economics. He also continues to write regularly on classical music and the arts for Hong Kong publications. Another line of pursuits outside academia is creative writing in Chinese; he has published more than half a dozen books of prose essays and fiction.
