Huey was born in Macao and educated in Hong Kong. He graduated with a Bachelor degree in science major in mathematics, a Postgraduate diploma in education concentrating in secondary mathematics, a Master degree and a PhD degree in mathematics education. His PhD thesis focused on theory of semiotic mediation fostering teachers and students to respectively teach and learn mathematics through manipulation with tools. His research interests range from mathematics education, ICT education and STEM education.
Before joining USJ, he taught in high schools and tertiary institutions, and worked in universities in Hong Kong for years.
