Research Interest

  • Erosion and Sediment Yield Control
  • Hydrology and Water Resources

Background

I joined Curtin University Malaysia (Curtin Malaysia) in January 2020, previously worked as Senior Lecturer in International College of Advanced Technology Sarawak (i-CATS) before joining Curtin Malaysia. I obtained both my BEng (Hons) (Civil) and PhD (Civil) from Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS). My study interest for PhD involves Erosion and Sediment Yield Control in Equatorial Region. In addition, I have been exposing myself to the industry by working as Part-time Environmental Consultant; mainly involving myself in environmental-related civil engineering design projects, such as conducting Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), formulation of Environment Management Plan (EMP) and Environmental Monitoring Report (EMR). I am also registered as an EIA Consultant with Natural Resources and Environment Board, Sarawak (NREB).
