Research interests

Water security is an issue affecting many parts of the world and it is essential to ensure sustainability of water access. Rapid urbanisation and development of industries in Malaysia meanwhile has contributed to contamination of freshwater sources. Therefore, my primary research interest involves the application of technologies for water/wastewater treatment, with focus on the following areas:

  • Biological treatment of industrial wastewater (particularly anaerobic digestion)
  • Development of decentralised treatment system for non-potable reuse
  • Technologies for water remediation accessible to remote communities
