Appointed as head of Advanced Vehicle System research group from 2012 to 2018 and research manager of MJIIT from 2018 to 2020.
Development of a device that can produce emulsion fuel without chemical additive or surfactant has started since 2012 when MJIIT granted a research grant. Since then, 10 other research grants with an amount worth about USD300,000 has been secured. In year 2019, a company has been established in collaboration with one of Malaysian automotive parts manufacturer in order to commercialise the device. The device was named as Real-Time Non-Surfactant Emulsion Fuel Supply System or in short RTES and the detail of the company can be surf from the website www.rtes.my.
