Huzairy Hassan has completed his PhD in the year 2017 at the age of 32 years from the University of Adelaide, Australia. He is a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Chemical Engineering Technology, Universiti Malaysia Perlis, Malaysia. He is specializing in biochemical engineering field which focuses on the bioelectrochemical system/microbial fuel cell and wastewater treatment technology. He has published more than 20 papers in reputed journals and conferences. He is currently pursuing a postdoctoral study at the Universiti Sains Malaysia, concentrating on the development of adsorbent materials by pyrolysis of biomass for emerging contaminants removal. He is also interested in investigating the roles of bacterial biofilms or specifically known as electrochemically active biofilms (EABs) that convert chemicals to electrical current on electrodes. His near future research direction is the study on the unique characteristics of EABs that can be analysed using electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance, microscopy, cyclic and linear sweep voltammetry, polarization curves, coulombic efficiency and flow cytometry methods. He likes to spend time gardening with his family in the yard of his village house in Kangar, Perlis.
