Expert Profile


Harlina Md Sharif is a Ph.D holder in Islamic Art and Archaeology from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London (2013) with her research focusing on the morphology and idiomatic expressions of mosques in Island Southeast Asia. Her early education was in Architecture with Master of Design Science degree majoring in Computers in Design. Her professional training has mainly been in computer graphics applications in design, both as a designer as well as an educator, while living in Sydney, Australia from 1990 to 1997.
Her passion for Islamic study took her to study Arabic in Egypt in 1997, and then in Jordan in 1998 to pursue a Diploma in Islamic Jurisprudence (Syari'ah). As a doctorate student in the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, she discovered that her linguistic skills in Malay, English and Arabic were instrumental in enabling her access to many resources pertaining to the study of the origin and development of mosque architecture in mainland Arabia and relate it to the search for Islamic identity of the Malay world.
Harlina is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Applied Arts & Design at the Kulliyyah of Architecture and Environmental Design in IIUM. Her research interests are in the areas of the impact of cultural exchanges and maritime network to the traditional Malay-Islamic design and heritage, as well as the application of digital technologies in visualization and documentation of cultural heritage.
