I am a researcher and an academic staff from the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Universiti Putra Malaysia and have since served in the department since April 2012. I have an interest in air pollution studies specifically in the assessment of indoor air exposures and its corresponding relationship with human health. My current research projects includes the quantification of carcinogens and non-carcinogenic toxicants from e-cigarettes and the development of humidity control materials to reduce excess moisture in indoor environments. Apart from air pollution research, I have since developed mutual interest in agricultural-themed research projects. My current projects are related to pesticide exposures among farmers in cocoa plantations and the implementation of work-interventions to reduce musculoskeletal disorders among pineapple plantation workers. My future research goals are to help develop tools which can help disadvantaged farmers in their daily work.
In terms of lecturing, I teach the Occupational Safety and Health Management System to undergraduates which are based on the well-known International Standard (OHSAS 18001: 2007) and the Malaysian Standard (MS 1722: 2011) for the workplace. I have obtained a competency certification for the auditing of OHSAS and MS 1722.
Apart from doing research and lecturing, I am heavily involved in supervisions of PhDs, MSc and undergraduate students in UPM.
