Currently a Professor in Bioprocess Technology with Universiti Sains Malaysia, Malaysia
I joined Universiti Sains Malaysia back in 1998 as a student, to pursue my first degree. Little did I know that I was on a journey to be a part of its academics. With a B.Sc. in Food Technology (USM), I proceeded to obtain a Masters in Food Biotechnology from USM. Upon obtaining a Ph.D. in Food Microbiology and Safety from Victoria University (Melbourne, Australia), I joined USM in December 2006 as a lecturer at the age of 28. I was later promoted to Senior Lecturer in July 2008, Associate Professor in August 2010 and Professor in October 2015.
Being in academia has given me a new insight of life as an educator. It has given me the privilege to communicate with the younger generations, to teach and be taught. Apart from lecturing, my passion lies in research. More information on the field of my research could be obtained from my Research Page. I always believe that research and development is the best way to improve the quality of life.
