Md Qawiem Hj Md Jamil

Assistant Lecturer, Faculty of Science

I obtained a Bachelor of Science in Theoretical Physics with Second Class Honours, Upper Division (2:1) in 2014 from University College London.

Taking Theoretical Physics at UCL as my undergraduate degree has given me a solid understanding of physics and a strong mathematical foundation which I plan to take advantage of to pursue and achieve my goal of obtaining a PhD and equipping myself with the knowledge and skills required to become successful in the career that I choose and an expert in this field that I have ventured into.

I obtained a Master of Science in Astrophysics with Distinction in 2015 from University College London.

With the intent to focus on Cosmology and Astrophysics, I chose to further my studies by taking a Masters in Astrophysics. Having witnessed the strong Astrophysics department during my undergraduate course, I decided to continue studying at UCL. This has enabled me to further explore my interest in Cosmology; especially through my thesis in which I investigated the effect a void has on the value of the local rate of expansion i.e. the Hubble Constant, H0. This experience has given me the desire to further my education for the opportunity to carry out research and investigation of cosmological models to understand the behaviour of our Universe.

I was appointed as an Assistant Lecturer for the Applied Physics Department at Universiti Brunei Darussalam in June 2016.

I am interested in pursing further studies in field of Cosmology, to be able to investigate the validity of cosmological models.

I am currently teaching Level 1 Quantum Mechanics, co-supervising lab experiments as well as supervising and co-supervising final year undergraduate projects. I am a member of the Physics Admission team and Faculty of Science Health & Safety team. I am also a member of the Entrepreneurship Village team.

In my spare time, I enjoy brewing coffee, playing and listening to music, as well as playing football and longboarding.
