   Biografi/ Biography :

  • 🧫🧬`Joined ACADEMIA (2007) with ZERO SV-backed projects, publications & citations. Since 2002, the TOR (Research Engineer@UTMalaysia) has been purely on engineering research/consultation-based projects with specific NDA technical reports (ZERO AWARENESS on publishing scientific articles). Unlike ACADEMICS, Engineers silently solve/fix things creatively (none of that matters to them). PROUDLY works out on his baseline bottom-up. NEVER WILL be an OPPORTUNIST & SHAMELESS HITCHHIKER` 🧬🧫 Saiful Irwan Zubairi is a board-certified Professional Technologist (Food Technology) and Associate Professor in Food Bioprocessing and Biomaterial at the Department of Food Sciences, Faculty of Science & Technology (FST), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM).
