Associate Professor Ts. Dr. Rafidah Md Noor is currently a Deputy Dean (Science) at Institute for Advanced Studies, Universiti Malaya. She was the Deputy Dean of Undergraduate Studies, Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology (August 2014 - July 2016) and Head of Department of Computer System and Technology (February 2011- July 2014), Faculty of Computer Science and Information Technology, Universiti Malaya. She is also a Head for Centre of Research (COR), Mobile Cloud Computing (C4MCCR) (2016-2021).
Rafidah received her BIT from Universiti Utara Malaysia in 1998, and MSc in Computer Science from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia in 2000, and PhD in Computer Science from Lancaster University, United Kingdom in 2010. She has supervised 1 PostDoctoral Fellow, 13 PhD students, 5 Master of Computer Science (by Research) and 28 Master of Computer Science (Mixed Mode) and Taught course.
Rafidah’s research is related to a field of transportation system in computer science research domain. For many computer scientists, theory and practice may denote a distinction without difference, so rapidly have her research framework on Intelligent Transport System (ITS) been tested in large computational experiments in hopes of improving the road traffic system for urban environments. She is also active in research grant's evaluation at University and Ministry Level.
Rafidah has performed more than 2 Million (Ringgit Malaysia) research grants from internal and external entities. She is also a co-researcher grants from local universities such as Sunway University, Universiti Malaysia Sabah, and Universiti Teknologi Malaysia Melaka. To contribute her research ideas into a community, she has designed and patent a novel framework, System and Method for Relieving Traffic Congestion (PT/5503/UM/14) (granted 23 June 2020 until 12 November 2034) for emergency rescue operations. She has filed and granted several copyrights from her research works since 2012 to current. Rafidah’s efforts are driven by the courage to implement the framework that challenges the existing protocol/standard. Her research interests include vehicular networks, mobile and wireless networks, Internet-of-Things, Cloud and Fog computing, Quality of Service (QoS), and Energy Management.
She is actively publishing journals in Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE - with Cumulative Impact Factor (CIF) more than 130) and Scopus. She has published 86 SCIE indexed journals (50% published in Tier 1), H-index (16 in Publons and 19 in Scopus), and 1173 Scopus Citation. She invovles in International journal reviewers and national research grant assessors (Ministry of Higher Education and Private Universities). Rafidah won 13 awards (GOLD, SILVER and BRONZE Medals) from Research Innovation, Exhibition and Competition at National and International Level for her works on Urban Transportation and Computing Solutions (since 2012 until present). She served as external examiners for PhD thesis for public and private universities locally and internationally.
Rafidah is an Associate Editor in Connected Mobility and Automation (Specialty Section), Frontiers in Future Transportation Journal, Guest Editor for a Special Issue, Panel Assessor for Academic Promotion at Private University. As Deputy and Head (previously), she involved in curriculum development and monitoring, therefore her skills is recognised and appointed as the Panel Assessor for Existing Academic Programme and Programme Accreditation (Bachelor, Master and PhD Degrees) at Sunway University, Taylor's University, Monash University, Universiti Putra Malaysia and Universiti Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia (UTHM).
