Dr. Nadirah Zawani
R&D Engineer, AMBU Sdn. Bhd.
Dr. Nadirah Zawani was appointed as CAS Young Scientist in 2019 while doing her doctorate. With her resilient and tenacious attitude, she challenged herself to explore different areas throughout her education journey. She obtained her Master of Science (Chemistry) in Catalytic and Materials Science from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. After that, she embarked on her double Ph.D. studies in Natural Product and Organic Synthesis, intending to find anti-viral “hit-to-lead” compounds. She successfully acquired her Ph.D. from Universiti Sains Malaysia and the University of Lorraine, France 2020. The exposures to multidisciplinary research allowed her to interact with people of different fields and expertise. During her Ph.D. studies, she worked as a sessional part-time lecturer at a private university. She taught Cambridge AS & A Level Chemistry at KDU Penang University College and Chemistry for Health Science and Medicinal Chemistry at RCSI & UCD Malaysia Campus, Penang. Now, she is stepping out of her comfort zone to polish her research and development skills in the medical devices industry as an R&D Engineer at AMBU Sdn. Bhd. She hopes that this could encourage future collaboration in research and development between industries and academicians in Malaysia.
