I am a dad who is, so enthusiast to see my kids grow every day.

Upon completing my PhD at Melbourne Dental School, The University of Melbourne in the area of Oral Microbiology and Immunology, I was appointed as an Assistant Professor at International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) in 2016.  I was then appointed as an IT coordinator at Kulliyyah (Faculty) of Dentistry, IIUM in 2017.  I was the Head of Grant Management Unit (formerly known as Deputy Director), Research Management Centre, IIUM Kuantan Campus from 2018 until July 2021.  On the 1st of August 2021, I was appointed as the Deputy Dean of Student Development and Community Engagement (DDSDCE).

I am a very enthusiast microbiologist and immunologist and currently working on oral probiotics, oral carcinogenesis and polymicrobial biofilms.  I am also delivering lectures in the area of immunology, biochemistry and microbiology.

Enough for the academics.

I am a dad of four children, an awesome husband to the most beautiful angel, Nurul Izzah Zulkifli. Being a dad, a husband at the same time a researcher (hopefully a well-known one soon) makes me feel so happy to share my journey. A journey of a researcher-dad to four homeschoolers.
