Lee Sin Yee
Scholarly Teaching Fellow
School of Science
In 2014, Sin Yee graduated from Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) with a major in Food Science and Technology. She was awarded by the faculty for her exemplary academic achievement and adoption of green technology in her final year project upon her graduation. Following that, she pursued her Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in her alma mater in field of food technology.
She is a foodie. Food is her world. She loves walking down the aisles of grocery stores to see the new food products that are hitting the shelves while finding the ones that worth putting in her cart. She enjoys reading cookbook, cooking and baking in her free time because these habits could just spark her creativity on crazy food ideas, out of the blue.
She is deeply grateful and blessed for the rich learning environment that her teachers and lecturers had created for her in her learning path. The knowledge that they imparted to her has made her to believe in the value of knowledge sharing. To her, knowledge builds up on prior knowledge and it is never get isolated. Knowledge sharing helps her to get invaluable feedback from those more skilled or with different set of competences.
Feel free to connect with her as she enjoys conversation with people from different academic and research profiles.
