Shaliza Ibrahim is a professor in the Environmental Engineering Programme at the Department of Civil Engineering, Universiti Malaya (UM). Trained in Chemical Engineering, she has been involved in research on mixing in stirred vessels since her PhD years with Professor Alvin Nienow at Birmingham back in 1988. She continues to conduct fundamental research on mixing with particular interest in solid-liquid systems and geometric effects. Her current studies include mixing effects on wastewater treatment processes, namely metal ion adsorption and dye decolorization. She and her co-researchers have also conducted studies on biohydrogen production and bioplastic formation from the treatment of palm oil mill effluent. Shaliza teaches Chemical Process Principles and Reactor Design and Unit Operations for Biological Systems, and also gives a lecture on Anaerobic Wastewater Treatment in an e-learning programme between UM, Kyoto and Tsinghua Universities. In recent years she has been a consultant for Cleaner Production projects for the Department of Environment. Her more than 20 years of service in UM have included numerous administrative responsibilities from programme coordinator to deputy dean; and she is presently Head of the Research Grant Management Unit at UM.
