BSc (Hons) Nutrition
I graduated from The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus in 2016 with BSc (Hons) Nutrition. I was awarded with Dean's Excellence Awards for consecutively 2 years during my undergraduate degree. I was also awarded with Oxford University Press Prize (2015) and Ron Bardsley Prize (2016) for the Part 1 and Part 2 of my undergraduate study respectively.
I had the opportunity to attend several international conferences such as the Global Food Security Forum (2014) organised by The University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus and British Nutrition Society Meeting Conference (2015) organised by the British Nutrition Society.
During my undergraduate final year study, I conducted a cross-sectional research on the relationship between salt intake and blood pressure under the supervision of Dr. Soma Mitra. The results from this study were presented during the Nutrition Society of Malaysia Annual Conference 2016 to the acemdemias, food industries and policy makers in Malaysia.
