Background and activities

Currently I am a PhD candidate at the Environmental Engineering and Reactor Technology Group in the Department of Chemical Engineering. I am working on uncertainty analysis of computational tools and models for CO2 capture via chemical solvent process.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Chemical Engineering from University Putra Malaysia and a Master’s Degree in Chemical Engineering for Refining, Petrochemical and Gas from IFP School in France. In addition, before joining SINTEF Energy Research, I have also worked as Environmental Engineer for a year in Malaysia and for Technip as Process Engineer in Malaysia and France for a total of three years in the Upstream (Onshore/Offshore) department. 

Among the wide range of topics under Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), my interest lies primarily in the areas of CO2 separation technologies especially in industrial processes, energy efficiency and environmental effects in which I believe I can contribute in developing new knowledge and expertise.
