Biography

I obtained a Ph.D. in Information Technology at Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP), Malaysia. Prior to that, for 2 years, I was the researcher for the project (green IT related R&D activities and setup in Malaysia No.1 & 2) collaboration between UTP and Hitachi R&D. Furthermore, I was a graduate assistance at UTP for over 5 years.

My primary expertise is in the area of Green Computing. I envision to work on sub-areas of sustainable computing or environment, for safe, efficient and economic energy consumption. Also, I would love to work on the areas of IT and tourism.
