Short Bio:
Dr. Siu completed her master degree at the Max Planck Research School for Computer Science in 2005. Afterwards, she joined the Theoretical and Computational Membrane Biology group at Saarland University where she received her Ph.D. degree (Dr. rer. nat.) in 2010. Then, she joined the Computational Biology group at University of Erlangen for postdoctoral training. Currently, she is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer and Information Science at University of Macau. Her research interests include molecular dynamics simulations, protein structure prediction, machine learning and its application in drug discovery and bioinformatics.
