I am a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Water and Environmental Engineering, Faculty of Civil Engineering, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. Prior to joining the faculty, I was practicing as a Coastal and Water Quality Modeller/Engineer at G&P Water & Maritime (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd., Researcher at Hydro-environmental Research Centre, Cardiff University, UK and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, and Civil and Structural Engineer at BJP Consult (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd.
I received my first degree of BEng (Hons) in Civil Engineering from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia in 2011. This is followed by my second degree of MSc in Civil Engineering (Hydraulics and Hydrology) from the same university in 2012. I was then awarded the PhD in Water Engineering (Computational Hydraulics) from Cardiff University, UK in 2019 with the thesis on “Modelling of Intertidal Floodplains for Enhanced Estuarine Transport and Decay of Faecal Indicator Organisms from a Diffuse Source.”
My experience is in the development and refinement of the computational model for hydrodynamics, solute transport process and kinetic of FIOs, especially at the very-shallow intertidal environment and coastal waters. My motivation to the numerical modelling of surface water hydrodynamics is to ensure the sustainable water management and sanitation along with reducing the risk of climate change and impacts. My current research is expanding in the knowledge area of micropollutant transport.
I am available for the postgraduate supervision.
