   Biografi/ Biography :

  • My passion for neuroscience led me to pursue a Ph.D. at Universiti Sains Malaysia, where I also served as a graduate research assistant. In July 2015, I assumed the role of Senior Lecturer at the Department of Physiology within the Faculty of Medicine at The National University of Malaysia. Currently, I hold the esteemed position of Associate Professor, a role I`ve held since April 2022, within the same department. Over the past eight years, I have been dedicated to educating medical undergraduates, primarily focusing on Neurophysiology. My responsibilities have included spearheading the Neuroscience Module for Year 2 of the medical undergraduate program, as well as teaching postgraduate students in neurophysiology. My teaching methods encompass a broad spectrum, ranging from concept lectures, problem-based learning, and small group discussions to practical laboratory classes. Furthermore, I possess extensive experience in curriculum development at the undergraduate and postgraduate levels, review, and question vetting for both postgraduate and undergraduate programs. I have actively contributed to the creation of new modules designed to enrich the educational experience of students. In parallel with my teaching career, my research endeavours have primarily revolved around drug and alcohol dependence, as well as the intricate aspects of learning and memory. I have authored nearly 72 publications and have received recognition through awards at the university, national, and international levels. My professional network extends across collaborations with various institutions, both within Malaysia and abroad, industry stakeholders, and government agencies. Beyond academia, I have remained deeply engaged in community projects, extending my passion for science and neuroscience to primary, secondary, and tertiary education levels. These initiatives have served to promote and elevate scientific awareness and understanding.
