A bit on myself.

Assalamualaikum and Greetings.

My background was in Mechanical Engineering. I did my bachelor degree in Mechanical Engineering specifically on the investigation of water column teardrop induced by shear flow. That was back in 2000.

I returned back to Malaysia in 2001, and joined a Japanese manufacturing company at Pasir Gudang as a Mechanical Design Engineer for almost 4 years. After three years working there, I took up MSc Mechanical Engineering course part-time, before resigning after a year, so I can pursue my master degree at UTM. I finished my MSc. degree (taught course) with a dissertation in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) project investigating the effect of polar cavity flow using splitting method algorithm in 2006.

Afterwards, I applied for UTM International City Campus for a tutor position in 2006, and I was hired as a tutor with the condition to apply for PhD degree within 6 years.

I taught several subjects to the Diploma students at UTM KL, for two semesters before pursuing my study at the UK, specifically in Aston University, Birmingham. The research area was again in Mechanical Engineering. However, the contents of my research was in left ventricular assist device (LVAD) i.e. a cardiovascular engineering research area. My PhD thesis title is ‘ The Development and Investigation of a Novel Left Ventricular Assist Device’. You can look it up in Aston University repository. Here’s the link. http://eprints.aston.ac.uk/19186/

I now consider myself as a biomedical engineer/researcher, albeit heavily influenced by mechanical engineering discipline. I now work at Faculty of Biosciences and Medical Engineering as a lecturer, and also a full member of the IJN-UTM Cardiovascular Engineering Centre.

Okay, till next time. Insyallah.
