Biography

Dr. Bing Shen How received his MEng(Hons) in Chemical Engineering from the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering, University of Nottingham (Malaysia Campus) in 2014. He further received his Ph.D. from the same institution in 2018. Upon graduation, Dr. How first joined the same department as a teaching assistant. Subsequently, he worked as a postdoctoral in Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS in the late 2018. After the completion of the postdoctoral project, he then joined the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Science in Swinburne University of Technology (Sarawak Campus) (SUTS) as a Lecturer in 2019. He is recognized as a Chartered Engineer (CEng) under IChemE. Given his research excellence, he has won the Young Researcher Award category in both IChemE Malaysia Award 2021 and IChemE Global Award 2021. He is also active in external community services. Currently he is serving as the secretary in IChemE Palm Oil Processing Special Interest Group (POPSIG) and an associate editor in Frontiers in Sustainability since 2021.
