Dr Siti Fatimah Ibrahim


I completed my undergraduate degree at the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia in 2009.  Right after, I joined one of the major chemical manufacturing company in Malaysia as part of their water division, providing technical support for water and wastewater chemical treatment process.  In 2012, I pursued my PhD at the University of Leeds, and finished in 2016.  Once finished, I return to Malaysia to teach at one of the government-linked university, and was assigned to the food engineering department.  I teach core modules, invovled in student development and lifestyle, advisors and supervisors for projects. I have served good years as head of section leading team thorugh programme accreditation audit, development of new bachelor programme, managing staff and the overall section operations.  End of 2022, I moved back to my alma mater, to become an academic under the curriculum redefined scheme. 

I managed to secure few research fundings internally and externally throughout my teaching years with projects related to computational modelling and food process engineering. 

Research interests
