My name is Arief I. Zamani and most people call me Arief. I am PhD holder in Systems Biology specifically microbial metabolomics graduated from Institute of Systems Biology (INBIOSIS), Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia/ The National University of Malaysia. Previously, I worked on recognition protein that involved in oyster immune system which I obtained a Master of Science in Biotechnology from University Malaysia Terengganu. My current research interest is to understand the adaptation of microorganisms in growing on different carbon source or under different environment condition. As I am experienced in microbial metabolomics, I had conducted several studies on physiological aspect as well as metabolic changes in microorganism which the works had been published in several journals including a Q1 journal. Before joining Leave a Nest Malaysia, I worked in collaboration project between INBIOSIS, Sime Darby Technology Centre and Brandenburg University of Technology Germany to develop a new fermentation system based on selective cultivation condition. I was trained to conduct research in industrial framework and to deliver according to expectation. Besides, I am also experienced in nurturing future researcher by assist them in doing science and preparing them to compete in various scientific exhibition. In addition, I am also experienced and involved in providing research training and workshop for young researcher as well. I believe that doing science (research) and promoting science (STEM education) is compliment to each other. Hence, nurturing science in future generation is equally important as finding new discovery for human benefit. As I joined Leave a Nest Malaysia, my mission is to develope research hub, a one stop facilities that aim to help young and junior scientist in doing science and to support them to publish their story.
