Chemical Engineering / Production Engineering / R&D Scientist
With a PhD degree in Chemical Engineering (Chemical Reaction Engineering), I have a full understanding of this position. My PhD research was focused on Synthesis and characterization of calcium-based catalyst for selective etherification of glycerol to diglycerol. Currently, I am postdoctoral researcher in Universiti Teknologi Petronas (UTP) in Malaysia. I have experience in working in the Centralized Analytical Laboratory (CAL) during my postdoctoral at UTP. CAL is one of the service centers established under Research and Innovation Office which is equipped with the various state-of-the-art analytical equipment. I am also a team member of Nanotechnology Mission Oriented Research and Nanotechnology for Oil & Gas, at Universiti Teknologi Petronas, Malaysia.
Moreover, as a postdoctoral researcher, I am working on synthesis of CNT supported catalysts for conversion of syngas to hydrocarbons via FT synthesis and copper based catalysts for direct synthesis of methanol from CO2. I am familiar with difference analysis techniques, which seems to be also suitable for working in the research center and industry. Beside these, I have working experiences as a production engineer and QC and laboratory technologist for around 6 years.
My long-term career goal is to continue to learn and grow my specialist skills and abilities, whilst utilizing my experience, knowledge and skills to benefit any employer I am working for.
