個人簡介

Dr. Woo teaches macroeconomics, public finance and welfare economics at CUHK. He also conducts researches, currently in three major areas (i) social status-seeking under imperfect market, (ii) social choice theory of paternalism, and (iii) economics education.

One of the aspects of teaching that he enjoys most is that he can present a proof of Arrow’s impossibility theorem in classroom to his students with a set of graphs that he constructed. He has also worked on a research project exploring how graphical methods can be used to improve presentation in, and help the understanding of, social choice theory.
