WORKSHOP INSTRUCTORS
breadmore Professor Michael Breadmore is a ARC Future Fellow at the Australian Centre for Research on Separation Science (ACROSS) based at the University of Tasmania, Australia. He is currently a member of the Editorial Board of Journal of Chromatography A and Electrophoresis. His research interests lie in the application of capillary and microchip electrophoresis for the trace analysis of environmental, clinical and forensic samples.
see Dr See Hong Heng is currently a senior lecturer at the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) as well as a visiting lecturer at the University of Tasmania, Australia. He completed his PhD in 2010 followed by a postdoctoral research fellowship at the University of Basel, Switzerland (2010-2013). His research interest focuses on development of new sample preparation method and application of capillary and microchip electrophoresis.
aemiDr Aemi S. Abdul Keyon is currently a senior lecturer at the Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). She completed her PhD in 2014 at the University of Tasmania, Australia. Her research interests lie in the application of capillary and microchip electrophoresis and new method development in pre- and post-column derivitization for detection in capillary electrophoresis.
