DR. WOON KAI LIN

Dr. Woon Kai Lin obtained his PhD in University of Hull in photonic liquid crystal. After graduation, he worked as a postdoc in electroluminescent liquid crystalline light emitting display capable of producing 3D image funded by a start-up company and venture capitalists. He also spent a year as a Postdoc in Oxford University to study whether photonic crystals in nature can be adopted for industrial application. Later, he returned to Malaysia to work as OLED (organic light emitting diode) materials and device specialist under OSRAM. The project initially focussed in passive matrix OLED display and then later in OLED lighting using solution processable techniques. The works involved co-operation with well-known multinational companies such as Mercks, Sumitomo and Philips.  Later he joined University Malaya working in the field of organic electronics specializing in organic light emitting diode. The works including leading cost effective  synthesis of organic semiconducting materials for lighting application, interfacial physics and fundamental mechanism of high performance OLED, accurate computation of OLED materials, organic field effect transistors and phototransistors.  Some of the works carried out in the University of Malaya involves co-operating with various universities in the world, domestic and overseas start-ups and local SMEs. He is actively filing patents in the field of organic electronics.The ultimate aim is to enhance the performance to price ratio for organic electronics by investigating and optimizing critical parameters and mechanism in organic devices using various analytical and processing tools available domestically and internationally including the use of synchrotron facilities.He is also the  material science program co-ordinator setting new undergraduate Material science lab and program. Material Science under Physics department has been ranked the best in Malaysia and Faculty of Science.

DR. AHMAD ZAHIRUDDIN BIN YAHYA

Dr. Ahmad Zahiruddin Yahya graduated from De Montfort University in Leicester, United Kingdom with an honours degree in Accountancy, and followed by a Master of Accountancy from University of Dundee, Scotland. He obtained his PhD in the field of Entrepreneurship from Sultan Idris Education University in Malaysia. Professionally, he is a member of Malaysian Institute of Certified Public Accountants (MICPA) as well as the Malaysian Institute of Management (MIM).   As an academician, he has a long illustrious career at the premier and oldest university in Malaysia -University of Malaya, spanning for the accumulated sum of 17 years, of which he has been awarded the Excellent Certificate Award for a couple of times, and had served at various administrative posts including the Acting Director of the University of Malaya Centre for Innovation and Commercialization (UMCIC) and the Head of Department of Management Accounting and Taxation, Faculty of Business & Accountancy .   At national level, he has significantly contributed to the higher education quality assurance by serving as an Expert Assessor representing Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA) since 1999, and has assessed hundreds of accounting and business related programmes in Malaysia ranging from certificate level to masters. He is also a member of the distinguished Malaysian Accounting Higher Education Curriculum Committee setup by the Ministry of Higher Education to steer the direction of accounting education in Malaysia in 2013.   At the peak of his public service, he was appointed to lead a statutory body as the Director General of Cooperative College of Malaysia with the mission of transformation. As for now, he is back at University of Malaya to continue sharing his knowledge and experience after a stint outside, but still serve as Board of Director of MKM Global Holdings Sdn Bhd (a GLC under Ministry of Domestic Trade, Cooperatives & Consumerism Malaysia).
