Biography

Long Vo is a Research Fellow at The University of Western Australia (UWA) Business School and the Planning and Transport Research Centre (PATREC), a collaborative initiative between the Government of Western Australia and local universities, constituted to conduct applied research and teaching in support of policy in the connected spaces of transport and land use planning.

Prior to this, he worked as a Research Officer at UWA Business School and a Teaching Fellow at both UWA Business School and the School of Business and Law, Edith Cowan University. He previously held a Lecturer position at the Faculty of Finance, Banking and Business Administration, Quy Nhon University, Vietnam.

His studies in international trade and finance involve modelling the global demand for energy, food and agricultural commodities and the (mis)valuation of currencies. In the area of financial asset pricing, he specialised in analysing the dependence structure of high-frequency returns and volatilities. His broader macroeconomic research interest is the interplay of technological innovation, intangible capital investment, and transport networks in facilitating structural economic transformation and productivity improvement.

Long participated in a PATREC project investigating the extent to which working-from-home (WFH) is being undertaken and will continue to be during the COVID-19 pandemic; the utility of WFH as a future demand management tool for the mitigation of congestion on all transport networks; and the productivity impact when WFH is compared to the workplace, from the perspective of Australian workers and employers. This project was funded by the Western Australian Department of Transport.

His work has been published in Review of Income and WealthJournal of Economic SurveysEconomic ModellingWorld EconomyOpen Economies ReviewEnergy EconomicsEnergy Policy, Energy Reports and North American Journal of Economics and Finance, among other journals.

Long received his Ph.D in Economics from the University of Western Australia with support from an Australian Government's Postgraduate Research Award, and his Masters of Commerce in Finance from Victoria University of Wellington with support from a New Zealand Government's ASEAN Scholar Award.
