In 2011, he was awarded with a scholarship from Ministry of Higher Education, Malaysia to pursue his Master of Pharmaceutical Science (Drug Development) in School of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. His thesis focused on the encapsulation of anticholesterol in solid lipid nanoparticles using electrospray. He graduated on time for his master in 2013. In 2014, he was again awarded with a scholarship from the Ministry of Higher Education, Malaysia to enrol as a PhD candidate in Pharmaceutical Sciences (Pharmaceutical Technology) in IIUM. During his PhD, he was trained in developing a pharmaceutical formulation from the R&D stage until the product registration.

His current research interests include drug formulation and drug delivery in technologies such as electrospray, electrospinning and 3D-printing. With various collaborations locally and internationally, he was granted with several research grants amounting to more than RM2 million as the principal investigator and co-researcher. He is also active in supervising undergraduates, master students and PhD candidates in drug formulation and delivery.
