I am an Associate Professor in Faculty of Mechanical Engineering, Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka (UTeM), Malaysia. My main taught subject is Mechanical Vibration for undergraduate and Noise, Vibration and Harshness (NVH) for postgraduate. My research areas are acoustics, vibro-acoustics, and structural vibration.
I am also actively involved with oil and gas ⛽️ industries for consultancy projects especially in vibration. I am certified as the Vibration Analyst Category Level III by Mobius Institute, Australia.
Interacting with students in the classroom has always been my passion. In the early days of my teaching using Power Point slide, I realised I could not reach every student in my class to better grasp the fundamental concepts in the Mechanical Vibration subject. The subject was one among the ‘popular’ subjects in the faculty to have great numbers of E’s. I then changed the delivery of my teaching to be student-centred, rather than the conventional lecturer-centered. I have to make the course to be more personalised for students. For this purpose, I use Apple technology (Mac and iPad) to create my digital contents and publish them in a learning platform where the student can access the contents anywhere and anytime. In the classroom, I can focus the activities towards problem solvings and discussions to polish the critical thinking. The learning experience for the students has now been transformed to be more enjoyable and meaningful, and Mechanical Vibration subject is no longer listed as the ‘killer’ engineering subject in the faculty.
I am now helping schools across Malaysia which using Apple technology to leverage the schools towards the 21st century learning.
I am recognised by Apple Inc. as the Apple Distinguished Educator (ADE) and Apple Professional Learning Specialist (APLS).
