Mohd Shahrul, PhD

Atmospheric Scientist

About Myself

I graduated from National University of Malaysia with a Bsc in Environmental Chemistry and continued my Msc at Brandenburg Technical University of Cottbus, Germany for Process Engineering & Plant Design. Afterward, I did my PhD in Atmospheric Science at The University Malaya, Malaysia. While in my PhD period, I distinguished myself as an atmospheric scientist due to my achievement in scientific research activities involving University of Cambridge (UK), University of East Anglia (UK), University of York (UK), and University of  Heildelberg (Germany) . I was also awarded a PhD with distinction from UM at the age of 28 in 2012. After finished my PhD, I had joined The National University of Malaysia (UKM) as a senior lecturer at Department of Earth Sciences & Environment and appointed as the Head of Centre for Tropical System & Climate Change (IKLIM) at The Institute of Climate Change UKM from 2014 to 2018. I have garnered many research grant including Antarctic Research Grant for Climate Change studies. I have published more than 30 publications including refereed journals, chapter in book and proceedings. Currently, I am working with my team on Low-cost air quality sensor (LAQS) based on Internet of Things (IoT) platform, known as AiRBOXSense. The AiRBOXSense capable to conduct real-time continuous air quality level at various locations. This project involved Maxis Berhad, Gamuda Berhad, UKM Pakar Runding, Petaling Jaya City Council and others. 

My Science's theme

The central theme of my research are LAQS technology and study on the biogenic of atmospheric trace gases mainly on halocarbons and isoprene emissions. Other areas of research include climate change. I also consider myself as polar scientists, oceanographers and marine chemists.
