Personal profile

Biography

Dr Vineetha is currently an Associate Professor at the School of Engineering. She leads a research group focused on Solid State Lighting. In her role as the director of the ‘Intelligent Lighting Laboratory’, she has created a research environment that thrives on industry engagement, interdisciplinary involvement and international collaborations. She has achieved high quality research outcomes such as publications in Q1 journals and the securing of two large industry grants.

Dr Vineetha has pioneered teaching and learning approaches using flipped classrooms, interactive teaching using audience response systems, and virtual reality tools in laboratory training. She is currently a co-investigator in an ongoing learning space development project – Smart Lab for Engineering Design (SLED) – the first of its kind on both the Malaysian and Australian campuses and a chief investigator in another study on the - Impact of lighting on learning in classrooms.

In her role as the Course Coordinator for the Electrical and Computer Systems Engineering, she endeavors to improve the rigor in a diverse set of course management processes with the aim of improving student learning experience.

Research interests

In my research on Intelligent Lighting Systems, I apply Color Science fundamentals and Intelligent lighting control to solid state lighting (SSL) with an industry focus and the goal of realising energy efficient human-centric lighting systems. She has developed a unified approach for high quality lighting system design which optimises visual and non-visual qualities of light. Keeping in mind the wide adoption of LEDs for lighting needs, this research is highly relevant to the Malaysian SSL industry which is one of the Key Economic areas and prime movers of the economy identified by the Malaysian government.
