Pitching Projects From Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS):
Khairool’s educational background is in Computer Science and Information Technology, however coming from a family of teachers, it’s no wonder that he is passionate about teaching and education. In 2017, he decided to resign from his position as a systems analyst in an MNC company to run STEM classes focusing on coding and computational thinking. He then moved on to work with Sarawak Multimedia Authority (SMA) under the Digital Village Unit, where he, along with other colleagues, champions the talent development of both Startups as well as school STEM initiatives in Sarawak.
I believe in sharing values and growth mindset. I have a multi-disciplinary background in User Experience, Visual Design, Design and strategy. I’m interested in how user research contribute to accessibility for the digital platform.
