Personal Summary

A graduate of BSc in Geology (Hons) from University of Malaya, possesses great numerical and analytical skills, excellent computer proficiency, research oriented focused on gathering information and analyzing data and knowledge in Geostatistics, Geological Data Analysis and Geographic Information System (GIS) Application for Geosciences.

I started to develop my interest in data during my Final Year Project (FYP). My research project entitled Google Earth and GIS-based Mapping Landforms and Depositional Environments of Kelantan delta; comprising the methods of field studies, geomorphological mapping and statistical analysis on sediment samples which further led to data interpretation from landform mapping and grain size distribution that needed to conclude the process dominance of the study area. From the project given, I am able to derive actionable insights from a high amount of data, sort comparison and articulate a story.

In addition, I acquired technical experiences of working with exploration team in an Upstream sector. I was newly exposed to versatile software applications used for optimizing operations across drilling, geology and production. I have worked on creating composite logs, storytelling through huge amounts of data and presenting the results during meetings. Depicting myself as a strategic thinker, I am capable of breaking down the complex data into digestible content coupled with applying theoretical studies into practice.

I possess the ability to process and apply new skills and concepts quickly. My superior capacity of understanding new ideas and applying them correctly can be vouched for by working in a high paced environment during internship, holding high posts in different kinds of college projects and social volunteering.

Familiar with C programming, basic Python using Jupyter Notebook, R for basic statistics using RStudio, Relational databases using MySQL Workbench, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Power BI Desktop, ArcGIS, Google Earth Pro, PetroMod and GEO. I am constantly enrolling in additional online programming courses to develop my skills in VBA/Excel provided by Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC), where I can fully employ my competencies for future development.

A self-starter and hungry for more things to learn and experience, I am actively seeking for graduate opportunities within the Data Analytics, Business Development and Oil & Energy industry to evolve myself in new ideas and innovations.
