Dr. Joey Tsai is an Assistant Professor of Management at Binghamton University’s School of Management. He has a master’s and bachelor’s degree in Psychology, and a Ph.D. in Management. Before his academic career, he worked for a consulting firm in Asia for three years when he traveled extensively for work and visited many historical and culturally rich cities in Asia including Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam), Phnom Penh (Myanmar), Tibet, Guangzhou, Shanghai, Seoul, and Tokyo. Tsai’s interest in ancient Asian arts grew from these trips, and he began to collect arts and artifacts that resonate with him. Tsai’s professional training in leadership and human cognition, as well as his passion in history and arts, allow him to appreciate ancient Asian aesthetics, understand the Chinese philosophies embodied in these artworks and apply the wisdom (such as Feng Shui) to everyday life.
