WORK EXPERIENCE PLACEMENT
INSITITUT PENYELIDIKAN MATEMATIK UPM (INSPEM) - Intern (June 2018-September 2018)
Internship as lab assistant to a researcher in Cryptography branch of INSPEM.
Achievements and Contributions
Research: My course does not provide a course on Cryptography. When I started my internship, I have to
research the basics of cryptography and read textbook on elliptic curve cryptography. As I could not
handle the high level math required, I am tasked with finding pattern of an elliptic curve equation. I
discovered a Pascal Triangle of sorts. However, as my internship is ending, the work is continued by the
researcher’s other helpers.
Participated as narrator for a peace exhibition titled: “Everything you Treasure: For a World Free From
Nuclear Weapons”, from 14th to 18th November 2016. It was held at Universiti Malaysia Sabah Library,
Kota Kinabalu by Soka Gakkai Malaysia.
