|I am a Senior Lecturer of Operational Research at the Department of Decision Sciences, School of Quantitative Sciences (SQS). I earned my B.Eng degree in Mechanical Engineering from Universiti Malaya, Kuala Lumpur in 1996. Afterward I worked as an engineer in industry for more than 5 years. I am also a Graduate Member of Board of Engineers, Malaysia (BEM) since 1997. In 2001, I joined UUM as a tutor and obtained my MSc from Universiti Utara Malaysia in 2003 and finally Ph.D from University of Bradford, UK in 2009.
My research interests include decision analysis, operational research, discrete-event simulation, system dynamics modeling, queuing analysis, lean manufacturing, sustainable manufacturing, and knowledge-based systems. My contribution to my research field is evidenced by research grants and publications. I have led and completed one FRGS grant in green manufacturing system and one faculty grant in manufacturing simulation. I have also received two postgraduate incentive grants to assist my PhD students to complete their studies. I am also involved as a member in other eight grants including external grant from USM in the area of queuing and simulation analysis.
To date I have authored or co-authored more than 20 publications on decision sciences specializing mainly in simulation, knowledge-based system, and sustainable manufacturing in national and international journals and conference proceedings/seminars. Eight of the publications, four in journals and four in conference proceedings are indexed in ISI/Scopus.
I am now supervising 3 PhD students as main supervisor and one Doctor of Management (D.Mgmt) student as co-supervisor. I have also successfully supervised 1 MSc as main supervisor and 1 MS student as co-supervisor.
