Biography:
I was born in Kuala Pilah, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia in 1959. I received my secondary education at the King George V Secondary School in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan. In 1976 I was offered a scholarship to the U.K. where I did my ‘A’-Levels at Coventry Technical College, Coventry and eventually to Leeds University, Leeds, from where I obtained my honours Degree in Chemical Engineering in 1981. After graduation and upon returning home to Malaysia I was offered several jobs from companies such as PETRONAS, ESSO, SHELL and several others. However, due to the zeal to further my studies I declined all the offers and finally applied for a position of Tutor (Trainee Lecturer) at Universiti Pertanian Malaysia (now Universiti Putra Malaysia) in 1981.

In 1983, I was sent to University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology, UK on a Malaysian Government scholarship for my Master’s degree in Biochemical Engineering. My M.Sc project was on flocculation of proteins for improved recovery after fermentation. Upon returning to Malaysia I was appointed as lecturer at the Department of Food Technology in 1985. When the Department of Biotechnology was set up in 1987 I was loaned to the department to aid in setting up of courses for bioprocess and biochemical engineering. I was awarded a JICA training grant in 1993 to conduct research at Okayama University, Japan on carotene recovery from crude palm oil. In 1994, I was awarded an ADB Fellowship to conduct research at Monash University, Australia on protein recovery using chromatographic techniques. I was again awarded a JICA training grant in 1999 to conduct research at Yamaguchi University, Japan on vitamin E recovery from palm oil. I had also presented papers in a few regional workshops organized by UNESCO such as the regional workshop on energy from biomass in Bangkok, Thailand in 1986 and the regional workshop on bioinformatics in Osaka, Japan in 1987.
