Dr. Meor Hakif is a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Geology, University of Malaya. He teaches undergraduate courses in Stratigraphy and Sedimentology, as well as postgraduate topics in Reservoir Sedimentology and Sequence Stratigraphy. Dr. Meor Hakif frequently leads sedimentology, stratigraphy and petroleum geology fieldtrips to the Palaeozoic strata of NW Peninsular Malaysia and the hydrocarbon-bearing, Neogene strata of Sarawak and Labuan. He is also the Faculty advisor for the AAPG Student Chapter of UM and a Life Member of the Geological Society of Malaysia. He has been involved in the petroleum industry as an executive geoscientist at PETRONAS and as a consultant on several short-term sedimentology-related projects.
Dr. Meor is a clastic sedimentologist by training. His research interests in sedimentology mainly lies in the facies composition and stratal architecture of siliciclastic rocks, and how they are used to infer depositional and basin history. His work is mainly field-based, with field experience in northwest Peninsular Malaysia (Perlis, Kedah, Langkawi), Sarawak (Kuching, Sibu, Bintulu, Miri, Marudi, Limbang, Lawas), Labuan and Sabah.
Dr. Meor is also a worker on the stratigraphy of the Palaeozoic succession of northwest Peninsular Malaya, specializing in the palaeontology and biostratigraphy of Devonian tentaculitoids and graptoloids.
Dr. Meor Hakif received a PhD and DIC in Sedimentology from Imperial College, University of London, a MSc (with distinction) in Stratigraphy and a BSc in Geology from UM. He is a certified Professional Geologist (P.Geol.) with the Board of Geologists Malaysia.
