Dr. Japareng Lalung is a senior lecturer at University Sains Malaysia. Dr. Jap obtained his first degree in Ecology from Universiti Malaya. He worked for five years as a Project Manager for the Scientific Monitoring of Putrajaya Lake and Wetlands with Unit Perundingan Universiti Malaya and as a Water Resources Manager of Puncak Niaga Sdn. Bhd, a water treatment company in Kuala Lumpur. He then pursued a master’s degree in Water Science, Policy, and Management at the University of Oxford. He did a Ph.D. in Environmental Microbiology at Leeds University, U.K. Dr. Jap teaches Environmental Microbiology, Environmental Management, Environmental Science, Environmental Impact Assessment, and Environmental Forensics. He specializes in toxin-producing cyanobacteria or blue-green algae. His research involves the detection of toxin-producing cyanobacteria in Malaysia, especially in drinking water reservoirs in Penang. His projects are also extended to other regions such as Indonesia, the United Kingdom, and Antarctica. Dr. Jap has presented his work at conferences in the United Kingdom, Canada, Turkey, South Africa, New Zealand, Germany, India, Indonesia, and Malaysia.
