I, Prof. Mustaffa Shamsuddin, and Dr. Mohd Bakri Bakar visited The University of New South Wales (UNSW) and Swinburne University of Technology (SUT) in Sidney and Melbourne, respectively. Professor Rose Amal (Scientia Professor – a particular category of Professor at UNSW for outstanding achievement – and also Australian Laureate Fellow, Australian Academy of Science), received us in her laboratory in Tyree Energy Technologies Building at UNSW.
I am also very grateful to be able to meet and discuss with Assoc. Prof. Dr. Akbar Rhamdhani (SUT) and Dr. Yun Hau Ng (UNSW). They both are outstanding young scientists. We discussed the research collaborations with SUT and also UNSW.
Being in Sidney, is incomplete if I do not meet with my relative, Armanda Ardanis, who has 25 years of living in Sidney. I want to thank Armanda Ardanis to come to meet us at Indo Rasa Restaurant, Kingsford.
