BIOGRAPHY


Awanis serves as a senior lecturer in chemical engineering at University of Malaya since 2011. She started working at UM as a lecturer since November 2004.  Prior to that, she worked as a Plant Engineer in Hitachi Semiconductor Penang upon her completion of her bachelor degree sponsored by Monbusho Scholarship (Ministry of Education, Japan). She has a PhD from Imperial College London (2011), Masters in Environmental Biotechnology from University of Manchester (2004) and a Bachelor Degree in Chemical Engineering from Osaka University, Japan (2001). She pioneered membrane fabrication research using phase inversion process in UM since 2011. Awanis is currently a committee member of MyMembrane society (Malaysia), member of the European Membrane Society and a member of the Board of Engineers Malaysia. She is also a Member of Insitute of Engineering and Technology, UK. Since 2011, Awanis served in a number of administrative positions including; chemical engineering undergraduate program coordinator, faculty auditor and member of undergraduate curriculum review committee.

Her recent research activities include

1. Membrane fabrication and modification

2. Membrane technology and separation

3. Separation processes

4. Water and wastewater treatment using membranes

5. Carbon dioxide capture using a membrane gas absorption process.

Awanis has more than thirty published articles in ISI-indexed journals and she has presented many papers in national and international conferences and seminars.

She represented Malaysia in the ASEAN-US Science prize for Women competition in 2014 due to her work in improving the availability and safe drinking water in ASEAN region through novel membranes. She was also awarded Hitachi Research Fellowship by Hitachi Global Foundation in 2016 to perform research in collaboration with Membrane Research Centre, Kobe University and later in 2019, she received Yamaguchi University Visiting Scholar award to perform research collaboration with Yamaguchi University on fabrication of charged membranes with high ion permeability and high mechanical properties. She received Excellence Service Award from University of Malaya in 2015 and 2019 due to her contributions to the University, and Certificate of Excellent Service in 2016. She was awarded special grant in 2015 by the Ministry of Higher Education Malaysia through Fundamental Research Grant Scheme (FRGS) special grant for disaster mitigation and prevention during flood using membrane technology. Awanis has been extensively involved in 16 research projects, in which she has been the Principal Investigator for 12 internal and external grant worth of more than RM1 million. She is also an active reviewer of high impact factor journals such as Journal of Membrane Science, and Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews.
