Profile

M.K. Mohamad Haafiz is an alumnus of Universiti Sains Malaysia, Bachelor of Technology (Honour) in Bioresources, Paper and Coating (BPC). Then, he joined his alma mater as a Fellow of Academic Staff Training Scheme (ASTS), a turning point for his scholarship; Master (MS.c) and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D). As well, he has a Diploma in Wood Industry from Universiti Teknologi Mara (September 2005).

He was trained by Prof. Dr Wan Rosli Wan Daud during his Masters, working on the production and characterization of cellulose phosphate from oil palm empty fruit bunches (OPEFB) as potential biomaterial.

In November 2011, M.K.Mohamad Haafiz pursued his Ph.D in Polymer Engineerig at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) with great mentorship from Prof. Dr. Azman Hassan. His work was on the isolation of microcrystalline cellulose and cellulose nanowhiskers from OPEFB.
