Dr. Yusran Sulaiman is a senior lecturer at the Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM). He is also an associate researcher at Functional Device Lab in Institute of Advanced Technology. His research interest are preparation of materials, mainly conducting polymer based-materials and nanomaterials for the applications as sensing platforms (chemical sensors, biosensors, immunosensors), supercapacitors and photovoltaic devices (solar cell). Various techniques have been used to prepare and characterize the materials, including electrochemical techniques (cyclic voltammetry, chronoamperometry, chronopotentiometry, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy etc.), electrospinning and spectroscopic techniques. His research grants mainly from UPM, Ministry of Education and Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation.
