"If I didn’t do it first, I want to do it better." It's me!

Besides research, I spend most of my time in (day-)dreaming. Let's see what Einstein says about this: 
             "Imagination is more important than knowledge."

A short biography

Shirley W. I. Siu was born in Macau. She completed her B.Sc. and M.Sc. degree in Software Engineering at University of Macau. In 2006, she received her second M.Sc. degree from the Center of Bioinformatics at Saarland University. Afterwards, she joined the Theoretical and Computational Membrane Biology group at the same University where she received her PhD degree (Dr. rer. nat.) from the Physics Department in 2010. Then, she continued one-year of post-doctoral training in the Computational Biology group at the University of Erlangen. She was the recipient of the academic excellence award in Macau Foundation Prize for First Honor Degree graduates in UM in 1997, the fellowship award in the Max Planck Research School for Computer Science from 2003-2005, and the doctoral scholarship in the Graduate School of Physics at Saarland University from 2006-2009.
Currently, she is an assistant professor in the Department of Computer and Information Science and the lab supervisor of the Computational Biology and Bioinformatics Lab at University of Macau. Her research involves theoretical study and computer simulations of biomolecular processes with the aim of explaining and predicting the behavior of complex systems. She is also interested in machine learning and its application to problems in drug discovery, medical decision making, and bioinformatics.
