Background

Dr. Henry Foo Chee Yew is currently a lecturer in the Department of Petroleum Engineering at Curtin University, Sarawak campus. He accomplished his Ph.D in Chemical Engineering from Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) in 2015. He obtained both his Master and Bachelor degrees (Honours) in Chemical Engineering at School of Chemical Engineering, Universiti Sains Malaysia. His main research interest involved multidisciplinary research between Physics, Chemistry and Engineering in the emerging area of CO2 capture. His research focuses on development of nano-particles and nano-structure for CO2 absorption at high temperature.
