Expert Profile


I was born in Kelantan, Malaysia, the fourth in the family of five siblings, now living in Kuala Lumpur for almost 20 years, happily married with two children.  In 2001, upon completion of the Bachelor Degree in IT (Majoring in Multimedia Studies) in UKM. I applied for a job as a Matric Teacher at the IIUM Matriculation Centre, PJ Campus. This line of the academic world has always been in my mind since as young as I can remember, and therefore, my first job was a Matric Teacher. I truly enjoyed my time there teaching computing to students from various programs. I was also passionately involved with non-academic activities, like being a committee member for various programs, the master of ceremony for major events, and later in 2004, I was appointed as the Deputy Head of the ICT Department. 


In pursuing my dream as an academician, having just a Bachelor Degree is definitely not enough. I decided to apply for a job as the Assistant Lecturer in KICT IIUM (the same organization, but a different faculty) and hopefully looking for a scholarship opportunity to further studies a Master’s Degree. I moved to KICT in 2005. One year later, I had a chance to pursue a Masters of Computer Science in the area of Multimedia Systems in UPM, sponsored by the Ministry of Higher Education. I completed the course in three-semesters and graduated with a CGPA of 3.958. 
In 2010, I started my PhD journey overseas, fully sponsored by an Australian University, Swinburne University of Technology. It was an honour to be part of the design team at the School of Health, Art and Design. My PhD research was on the User Experience and User Interface Design and Information Visualization, whereby I design and evaluated a software tool for the use of junior and professional designers. The tool allows them to collect data from their target consumers visually and systematically, that can generate visual results in making informed decisions in developing successful products. It was a meaningful, enjoyable, and memorable experience, studying and learning in Australia. 

I love every minute of my journey as a lecturer, a researcher and a UX/UI designer, challenging but interesting. While teaching and designing are always my passion, I also enjoy research. I have published indexed journal articles and proceedings, secure National and University grants, as the Principal Investigator, and a co-researcher, reviewed conference papers and journal articles, as well as supervising Master and PhD students. I have been nominated as the most promising academician 2019 at the Faculty level. I am grateful. I look forward to more opportunities working with people around the world, sharing the same interests with me, in the area of UX/UI, Multimedia and Information Visualization.
