I am a Ph.D. student in Public Health with a concentration in Community and Behavioral Health Promotion. I graduated from University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign with a Master of Public Health degree in 2012. I also hold a Bachelor of Optometry degree from International Islamic University of Malaysia in 2009.
My interest is in translational research that focuses on health intervention programs designed for middle to low income population. I am also interested in exploring the functionality of health communication theories and strategies as well as health informatics in the intervention effort.
