Overview

Wing-Fai is a multidisciplinary scholar with a PhD in History. He holds academic qualifications and professional skills in computer engineering, electronic commerce, built environment and design.

While working in IT in various universities he continued to undertake research on Chinese geomancy (fengshui 風水) and chronomancy (zeri 擇日) in the everyday lives of Chinese Australasians. His research interest is in the ritual revolution of Chinese metaphysical culture due to the influence of cross-cultural interaction. At present he is an Honorary Research Fellow in the School of Historical and Philosophical Inquiry. His current research focuses on cross-cultural influences in the metaphysical contents of the Dunhuang manuscripts.
