Personal profile


Long Vo obtained his PhD at the Economics department of the UWA Business School. His research, which was supported by an Australian Government's Research Training Program Scholarship, sheds light on the dynamics of exchange rate movements in relation to international commodity price changes. In particular, he examined how the equalisation (or lack thereof) of food and agricultural production prices across 180+ countries accords with the purchasing power parity theory. He also explored fundamental drivers of international real exchange rates, consumption and pricing behaviours, using retail data from arguably the largest and most comprehensive statistical initiative known as the World Bank’s International Comparison Program. This research provides him with a solid understanding of the state of agricultural market integrations and trends, the degree to which currencies are over/under-valued, and the global demand for food and non-food sectors, among other matters. 

Long completed his Master of Commerce in Finance at the School of Economics and Finance of Victoria University of Wellington (VUW), which was supported by a New Zealand-ASEAN Scholar Award. At VUW, he specialised in using wavelet-based technologies in conjunction with conventional generalised autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity frameworks to analyse the short- and long-run dependence structure of ultra high-frequency financial returns and volatilities.

Long is an experienced researcher with a demonstrated history of working in the higher education industry in Vietnam, New Zealand and Australia. Concurrent with his studies at the UWA Business School, he works as a Teaching Fellow responsible for conducting lectures and tutorials, preparing academic materials and marking exams for under-graduate and post-graduate students at the Economics and Accounting and Finance departments, UWA and the School of Business and Law, Edith Cowan University. He also holds a Lecturer position at the Faculty of Finance, Banking and Business Administration, Quy Nhon University, Vietnam.
