Andrew Anak Ngadin
Andrew Anak Ngadin was born in Kuching, Sarawak, Borneo Island. He serves as a Lecturer at the Department of Biological Sciences at the Universiti Malaysia Terengganu (UMT). His appointment to the position of a Lecturer (2011) at the University has afforded him the opportunity to develop a dynamic research from national and international research collaborations. He earned his undergraduate degree in Biodiversity and the M.S. degree in plant genetics and breeding from the Universiti Malaysia Terengganu. In 2007, he began his Ph.D. studies at Nancy University in France and completed his Ph.D. degree in 2011 after having studied the biodegradative capabilities of the white-rot fungus Phanerochaete chrysosporium. This project led to an intense interest in glutathione s-transferases enzymes and biochemical functions. In addition to his research efforts, he returned to Malaysia and continued his career at the Department of Biological Sciences. At this time, he became involved in fungal physiology studies funded through the University grant and collaborated with his previous laboratory. He taught several courses at the University for undergraduate and the Diploma program. His research continues to focus on biodegradative mechanisms and the role of enzymes in response to pollutant compounds.
