About Me

I am a senior lecturer at the Department of Physics, Faculty of Science, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). I graduated with an honors degree in Physics from the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) in 2008. After graduating, I worked as a teacher in several secondary schools in Johor Bahru.  My invaluable experience working in the education field has helped me tremendously in preparing for the ‘theoretical’ classroom teaching.

After 1 year, I joined UTM in January 2009 as a tutor. In the following year, I continued my studies at the UTM for my masters degree. I was given an opportunity for exchanged programme at Osaka University for 3 months. I developed an interest in high energy physics experiment, specifically in developing a particle detector which lead me to carry on pursuing a PhD degree at the Osaka University in applied particle physics project. I completed my PhD thesis at the end of 2014 and was conferred a doctorate degree in 2015. My postgraduate journey has provided the best training ground for me to become an effective nuclear physicist and academician.

The outcome of the particle physics and experimenting using nuclear reaction in any data have always amazed me. For my masters dissertation, I developed a particle detector by using Multi Pixel Photon Counter (MPPC) readout for MuSIC Facility at Osaka University. In consequence, my PhD study followed this strand of investigation. During my PhD tenure, I had the opportunity to work using my detector on non destructive method of muon capture reaction for double beta decay experiment. This project involved a study of the nuclear structure by muon capture reaction to provide nuclear responses for double beta decay experiment. Here, I studied the neutron emission after muon captures and formation of radioactive isotopes under the tutelage of Prof. Yoshitaka Kuno, Prof Hiroyasu Ejiri and Prof. Akira Sato. Currently, my current research interests revolves in particle detection and neutron decay particularly involves in muon capture reaction.

At present, I have 13 years of experience using negative muon beam and measurement involving gamma rays, neutron and proton emission. Starting from 2015, I also have involve in the ground-breaking COMET experiment at J-PARC for investigation of charged lepton flavor violation (cFLV) in neutrinoless muon to electron decay.
