Experience and Opportunity

I have eight years of experience in supervising Master and PhD students working on reseach projects sponsored by government, industry and international bodies. To date, 11 PhD students and 4 Master students have graduated under my supervision.

As a supervisor, it is my priority to ensure all my students are well trained with neccessary technical skills and soft skills, which later become the vital tools for them to produce high quality research.

Under my guidance, students graduated with good track records in publication through publishing in top ranked journals. I also helped to connect my students with a network of renowned professors in the field to facilitate international collaboration and joint research work during their postgraduate studies. The excellent publication track record and international research experience enable them to secure employment at both local and international organisations. For more information about the student experience, you may refer to the testimonials from the graduated students here.
