Big congratulations to Cheng Yee who won the first place in Poster Pitching Competition under Research Month@FS program. (24/8/2020)
Assoc. Prof. Dr. Lee Siew Ling
My name is Lee Siew Ling. I have grown up in small village at Johor. After obtaining my PhD degree in Material Chemistry from Universiti Putra Malaysia in 2004, I had worked as a postdoctoral researcher for 2 years at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. I have been serving as lecturer at Faculty of Science, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia since 2007. I have chosen teaching as my career because teaching is meaningful and challenging. My interest in teaching began when I worked as a tutor to assist undergraduates in their practical and tutorials during my PhD study. I realised that the importance of an educator to influence one’s learning and thus produce a positive impact in life.
Teaching is to facilitate learning. Teacher/lecturer is essential in helping students to understand a concept, exposing students to new knowledge and thus assisting them to apply the concepts.
Currently, I am an Associate Professor at Chemistry Department, Faculty of Science, UTM. My main teaching responsibilities are undergraduate courses lecture. My teaching activities involve Chemical Thermodynamics, Chemical Kinetics and Electrochemistry and Corrosion Chemistry, Research Methodology and Information Retrieval and Laboratory Occupational Safety and Health lectures to undergraduate students. Besides, I am responsible to supervise the undergraduate and postgraduate researches in their research project. In every semester, I supervise 2 to 4 undergraduate students in research of catalysis and advanced materials.
Besides teaching, I enjoy in doing research. I am now the Fellow Researcher at the Center for Sustainable Nanomaterials, Ibnu Sina Institute for Scientific and Industrial Research. My research interest is in material chemistry for heterogeneous catalysis and mesoporous materials synthesis. I have received UTMShine Award in 2015 as one of the most active young researchers in UTM. I hope I would be able to contribute more to the development of community and industry through my research activities.
