Expert Profile
Nurul Farahain Mohammad obtained her BSc and PhD degrees from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia in Mathematics. She had joined the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) as an Academic Trainee in 2012. Upon completion of her PhD, she has continued to serve IIUM as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computational and Theoretical Sciences.
She has been actively engaged in research especially in the field of Applied Mathematics. As a result, she authored and co-authored 15 articles in journals, 8 articles in conference proceedings and 2 book chapters. She also presented her works at 10 conferences. Her published works received 54 citations with h-index 5. Apart from that, she also received several awards at research exhibitions. Among them are Best Award and Gold Medal at Malaysia Technology Expo (MTE) 2014, Bronze Medal at Innovation and Technology Expo (INATEX) 2013, and Bronze Medal at CITREx 2016.
Currently she is leading a research project under Research Acculturation Grant Scheme (RAGS) funded by the Ministry of Higher Education and co-researching a project under Research Initiative Grant (RIG) funded by IIUM. She is also enjoy teaching Calculus for Biotechnology, Mathematical Methods, Advanced Mathematical Methods and Computational Mathematics.
