Ph.D in Sensor Technology Engineering, University Putra Malaysia, UPM B.Sc (Honours) in Industrial Chemistry, University Putra Malaysia, UPM


Start my career as a Researcher at the Industrial Biotechnology Research Centre (IBRC), SIRIM Berhad in July 2007. I was promoted as a senior researcher at the IBRC, SIRIM Berhad in July 2020 and has served SIRIM for almost 13 years. I am also the technical referee of various international journals and has published over 10 patents and publications in various fields. In addition, I was also involved in several technical committees such as ISO 9001 and Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) and act as a Deputy Test Facility Manager for GLP facility in IBRC. I am one of the coordinator for Good Laboratory Practice Facility Upgrade and also one of the coordinator for new and first in south East Asia for In Vivo Inhalation Toxicity Laboratory. I am involve in preparation of documents for proposal, layout design, equipment purchase and others. I am leader for Acute Inhalation Toxicity Testing (scope under Department of Standard Malaysia), Hemolytic study (under National Pharmaceutical Regulatory Agency) and Extractable and Leachable (E&L) Testing. SIRIM is the pioneer for E&L testing. Getting an hands on training for Extractable and Leachable - Testing and Assessment at Basel, Switzerland and Acute Inhalation Toxicity Testing - Nofer Institute, Poland, December 2019.
