Welcome to Lui Che Woo College (LCWC). I am the Associate Master of the college. Also, I have been working for Faculty of Science and technology (FST) as a Math Professor since 1996. My academic interests are computational intelligence, neural networks, evolutional optimization, and applications of mathematics. Besides, I am the one and a half generation of toy collector in both Macau and Hong Kong. My toy collection includes mainly starships and robots from Star Trek, Transformers, Macross, and Gundam manga series. Currently, I am interesting in toys from Avengers. Drop by my office, and I can share more with you. Furthermore, I have been in fever of Chinese calligraphy for years. There is a calligraphy database called Genesis Chinese Calligraphy System in UM library website, and you will find that I am the creator.

I am glad that you will become one of us. LCWC is more than a place for you to stay. It will offer a lot of opportunities for us to share our lives with each other, help each other, and care each other.

I received my Ph.D in political science at the University of Hong Kong and bachelor’s degree in social work at Beijing Normal University. My research interests include civil society development in China, environmental politics, civic engagement and volunteering service. I have also spent time practicing service-learning, fair-trade and social enterprises. This is my first full-time job and I like it a lot. Young students always bring me joy and energy. I also enjoy talking with students, and learn about their way of looking at this world. In my spare time, I like doing volunteer services, traveling, hiking, handcrafting, cooking, etc. I am an adventurous person and am curious about new things. Recently, climbing and squash have become my new hobbies. Looking forward to sharing and learning with you!

Dr. ZHENG Yang-Yi, PhD

Office Extension: (853)8822 9357

Hello everyone, I’m Yang-Yi from Taiwan. It’s my honor for living and applying both my experiences and knowledge with LCWC. My previous job was a full time mentor in Tsing-hua College of National Tsing Hua University from May, 2010 to Aug., 2014. I believe that residential college is an important base for university education, and it worth investing resources and passion equivalent to the regular system. Even though my major was Art-related subjects in university, but I began to think deeply about the relationship and possibilities between people and the society since I was an undergraduate student. Therefore, I chose to study social philosophy for my master and doctoral degree; I also have great interest in ethnic issues and cross-strait affairs and culture interchange. In addition to my specialized field, I devote myself to teaching swimming and martial art for a long time. I’m not only concentrating on exploring the feeling of body perception, but also very willing to share all of my experiences. Hope we can explore ourselves and the world together in future college life.
