Dr. Sook Mei Khor holds a B.Sc. degree (Hons) from the University of Malaysia (UKM) in Applied Chemistry (2002). She moved on with her M.Sc. studies at UKM under Prof. Dr. Yook Heng Lee and Prof. Dato’ Dr. Musa Ahmad’s supervision (2002-2004). Since completing her M.Sc. research, she served as an R & D chemist for two years before being assigned to the Department of Pharmacology, Faculty of Medicine, UM (2006-2008) as a science officer. She moved to Sydney, Australia in 2008 to pursue her Ph.D. after acquiring some work experience in the industry under a Malaysian government scholarship (UM SLAI research fellowship). She received her Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry from the University of New South Wales (UNSW), Australia (2008–2011) under the guidance of Scientia Prof. Dr. John Justin Gooding (a great researcher, also a kind and awesome supervisor). She works in the field of electrochemistry, focusing on enzyme/affinity biosensors and the modification of the electrode surface. She currently leads a research group focused on the boundaries of analytical chemistry, analytical biochemistry, and electrochemistry, designing various types of (bio)sensors for analytical applications.
