Dr. Suan Hui Pu received the MEng degree in mechanical engineering from Imperial College London. He remained at Imperial for his PhD where he worked on micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) design and fabrication. Prior to joining the University of Southampton Malaysia, he was working in the semiconductor manufacturing industry. His current research interests include printed flexible electronics and wearable sensors.

He is a visiting academic in the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences at the University of Southampton, UK. Dr Pu has served as a technical committee member for IEEE Electronics Packaging Technology Conference (EPTC) and a reviewer for IOP Smart Materials and Structures, IOP Flexible and Printed Electronics and IEEE Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems, amongst others. He is a Senior Member of the IEEE and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) UK.
