My Curriculum vitae

Biographical Sketch

Andrew is a senior lecturer in the Faculty of Fisheries and Food Science at the Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT). His appointment to the position of Lecturer (2011) at the University has afforded him the opportunity to develop a dynamic research, from national and international research collaborations. He earned his undergraduate degree in Biodiversity and M.Sc. in Plant Genetics and Breeding from the Universiti Malaysia Terengganu. In 2007 he began doctorate studies at the University Henri Poincaré of Nancy I in France and completed his Ph.D. in 2011 after having studied the biodegradative capabilities of the white-rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium. This project led to an intense interest in glutathione s-transferases enzymes and biochemical functions. In addition to his research efforts, he returned from Nancy to Malaysia and continued his career at the Department of Biological Sciences. At this time he became involved in diversity of tropical fungi studies funded through the University grant and collaborated with his previous laboratory in Nancy. He taught several courses at the University for undergraduate level. His research continues to focus on biodegradative mechanisms and the role of enzymes in response to pollutant compounds.
