BIOGRAPHY


 

 

  • Associate Professor Dr. Zul Ilham bin Zulkiflee Lubes completed his B.Sc.(Hons.) in Universiti Malaya, a Panasonic Scholar for M.Sc. and a JICA AUN/SEED-Net Scholar for his Doctoral study at the Department of Socio-Environmental Energy Science, Graduate School of Energy Science, Kyoto University, Japan. His current research interest is in the field of biomass science (energy and environment), with esteemed awards from Japan Institute of Energy and American Oil Chemists’ Society (AOCS). Dr. Zul Ilham also serves as Associate Editor for academic journals PROGEE, MJS, JISDeP, JSAEM and Special Issue Editor for Processes. He has been appointed as M.Sc. and Ph.D. external examiner from several Malaysian universities (USIM, USM, UTM, UTeM and IIUM) and internationally (Pakistan and Japan). As an alumnus of the Young South-East Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) Professional Fellows Program, he volunteers regularly in promoting energy literacy, renewable energy and climate action to youth and community (Sustainable Development Goals; SDG 7 and 13) including being the country coordinator of the Asian Students Environment Platform (ASEP), a project supported by AEON Environmental Foundation. Professionally, he is a Certified Energy Manager (CEM), accredited under the ASEAN Centre of Energy. Apart from national and industrial research grants such as the FRGS, Gamuda Land and Petronas, his team strong relationship with international researchers led them to secure several coveted international research grants. During the Covid-19 global lockdown, he completed Certificate of Achievement in ENGSCI137x Energy in Environmental Constraints from Harvard University through edX and Certificate of Community Organizing for Action. Dr. Zul Ilham has been invited to participate as plenary or invited speaker in several international conferences and has been a Visiting Scholar to several universities (Kyoto University Japan, Zhejiang University China, Universitas Andalas and Institut Teknologi Sepuloh Nopember (ITS) Indonesia).  He was also the recipient of Fulbright Malaysian Scholar Award as Visiting Associate Professor at the Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, Cornell University, USA in 2022.
