ABOUT ME

I am a lecturer at the Centre for Advanced Material and Energy Sciences (CAMES) where we focus on niche, high-impact, multidisciplinary research areas which will hopefully develop to become focal points for a sustainable, high-value, knowledge-based economy in Brunei Darussalam.

Previously, I graduated with a DPhil in Condensed Matter Physics from University of Oxford in 2015 where I wrote a multidisciplinary thesis on applying external torque to the bacterial flagellar motor - a biomolecular machine about 50 nm in diameter. I also hold a Master of Research with Distinction in Photonics and a Master in Science (First Class Honours) in Physics, both awarded from Imperial College London.

In addition to my appointment as a lecturer at Universiti Brunei Darussalam, I am a long-term visitor at the Clarendon Laboratory, University of Oxford.

FUTURE PROJECTS

Research and development of anti-corrosion coatings for maritime applications

Operational maritime assets face a range of challenges and issues when deployed, of which corrosion is a major problem. In this joint-collaborative research project with the Centre of Science, Technology, Research and Development (CSTRAD), Ministry of Defence Brunei, a series of functionalised protective-coating technologies developed at the Centre for Advanced Material and Energy Sciences (CAMES), Universiti Brunei Darussalam, will be applied to maritime building infrastructure and vessels in order to mitigate corrosion and improve the performance of these assets.

Application invited for: PhD and Master in Material Science by Research
