Dr Shiaw Yin Yong


Lecturer, Faculty of Science


Shiaw Yin is a lecturer in the department of Mathematical and Computational Sciences at Universiti Brunei Darussalam where she has been a faculty member since 2003, a year after she graduated from her Bachelor of Science in Mathematics in the same university. Shiaw Yin completed her PhD in Civil Engineering and MSc in Operations Research, both at University of Southampton, UK. Her research interests lie in the area of operations research and intelligent traffic system, ranging from theory to design to implementation, with a focus on improving road safety and driver behaviour. She has collaborated actively with researchers in several other disciplines of operations research and engineering, particularly analysis on problems and interventions at certain road junctions in Brunei. She was the main researcher in the Traffic Light Dimming Project sponsored by Radix Traffic Limited, UK in 2012.
Shiaw Yin is currently the lecturer for undergraduate modules in operations research.
