BIOGRAPHY


Dr. Woi Pei Meng is currently attached to University of Malaya as a researcher, specializing in electrochemistry studies. She graduated in 2011 with PhD in Electrocatalysis. During her PhD studies, she was attached with Energy Materials Laboratory in University of East Anglia, UK under the supervision of Prof. Emeritus Chris Pickett and was given an opportunity to delve into the construction of electrocatalyst which inspired from the hydrogenases enzyme that responsible for the reversible uptake/evolution of dihydrogen, chemistry which is of potential technological importance to clean energy transduction.  She is specializing in electrode surface modification using various nanocomposites including carbon based materials, first and second row transition metals and 2D materials. Presently the bulk of her research focus deals with the electrochemical sensors development including construction of non-enzymatic biomedical nanosensors to accurately detect body metabolites such as glucose, sodium, sulphate and chloride in the body fluids, self-correcting divalent cations sensor for precision agriculture by measuring plant macronutrients at ppm level which can be applied in agriculture industry to avoid excessive use of fertilizers. On top of that, she is also researching in artificial photosynthesis, aiming to mimicking the nature on solving the energy crisis and slowing down the global warming via conversion of greenhouse gases into renewable fuel.
