Dr. Khor is currently a faculty member of the Chemical and Petroleum Department at Curtin University Malaysia. She graduated from Campbell University, USA in 2001. She then continued her Master degree in United Kingdom in Instrumental Analytical Method in Biological and Environmental Chemistry. She joined the industry as a Corporate Chemist in a water treatment company after her studies and has 3 years experience in water quality control and water treatment processes. In 2007, she entered into Curtin University to pursue her PhD in Chemical Engineering in the research area of produced water treatment. During these times, she had served as a research assistant and a tutor in Chemical Engineering Department of Curtin University. After completing her 4 years PhD studies, she continues her teaching in Curtin as a lecturer.
