Assoc. Prof. Dr. Roswanira Abdul Wahab

Diploma in Microbiology, UiTM, BSc. (Hons) in Industrial Chemistry, UTM, BSc. in Chemistry (Taught-course), UTM, Ph.D. in Chemistry (Synthesis), UPM


My passion for academics has always been teaching and research. I have been lecturing since 2006, and working with students has been nothing but fun and fulfilling to the soul. What better way to live but to inspire and guide young minds through the nooks and cranny of university life. On the other hand, my research interest only began when I was halfway through my Ph.D. training. Yes, I would call it “training.” It was then that I realized that there are so many things to do, to discover in life and that the knowledge that life offers is boundless.
