About Hadi Nur
My name is Hadi Nur, a professor at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) and an adjunct professor at Universitas Negeri Malang (UM). Currently, I and my family enjoy living in Johor Bahru. I spend almost all my time on campus in my laboratory to discuss scientific research with my students besides doing administrative work in the official office as a Director of Ibnu Sina Institute for Scientific and Industrial Research at UTM. I am also one of the initiators of Indonesia-Malaysia Research Consortium (I’MRC). Currently, I am serving as the Editor-in-Chief, Malaysian Journal of Fundamental and Applied Sciences, Associate Editor for Catalysis and Photocatalysis, Frontiers in Chemistry, and Regional Managing Editor for Asia-Pacific, Bulletin of Chemical Reaction Engineering & Catalysis. I am interested in higher education philosophy and eager to know the meaning of it all. I almost wrote all my activities and thoughts, and all can be searched on this website. I am very grateful to receive your comments, questions, and suggestions.
