I have trained myself to work in multidisciplinary environments by working at the Institute of Microengineering and Nanoelectronics (UKM, Malaysia), Department of Physics and Astronomy (University of Missouri, USA) and Institute for Regenerative Medicine (Medical School, Wake Forest University, USA).
I have worked with many different material printers. Firstly I modified an office thermal inkjet printer (Canon) to deposit organic materials. Then I used Dimatix Material Printer (DMP 2800) to fabricate organic solar cells and deposit FTO transparent electrode. Afterwards, I used Organovo's 3D bioprinter, and currently I work with WFIRM 3D extruding printers and microfab printer (piezoelectric and microvalve).
Working as a Ph.D. student under Dr. Gabor Forgacs' supervision (Scientific Founder of Organovo, Inc., and Modern Meadow, Inc.) gave me the opportunity to learn cell printing. I worked on the optimization of the tissue engineering process of fabricating tubular bio-printed biological structures, which allows for predictive quantification of the maturation and post-bioprinting process.
To extend my knowledge in tissue engineering, I started my work with Dr. Anthony Atala at the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine as a research fellow. Among others, Dr. Atala’s work was announced as the "Number 1 Top Science Story"of the year in the field of medicine in 2007, by Discover Magazine.
