Dr. Suan Hui Pu received the MEng degree in mechanical engineering from Imperial College London in 2006. 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 thin-film nano-crystalline graphene/graphite sensors, printed 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 IEEE Journal of Microelectromechanical Systems, IEEE Electron Device Letters, IOP Nanotechnology, IOP Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering, amongst others. He is also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA) UK.
