Dr. Yanny Marliana Baba Ismail is a registered Graduate Engineer and senior lecturer at School of Materials & Mineral Resources Engineering, Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM). She completed her PhD in Biomedical Engineering at the Keele University, United Kingdom (UK) in 2016. Dr. Yanny obtained her degree in Materials Engineering from Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) and completed her Master of Science in Bioceramics a year and a half later at the same university.
In 2018, she represented Malaysia for the International Scientific Debates for Global Week organized for young academics in Nottingham Trent University, UK. She has also published her research works at various prestigious journals and presented worldwide at the scientific conferences in the UK, Europe, US and South-east Asia. Besides being actively involved in research, she is also highly passionate in online Teaching & Learning (T&L) where she has been appointed as one of USM’s Trainers for T&L programme under Centre for Development of Academic Excellence (CDAE).
Inspired by her parents’ career paths in the medical line, and having observed the plight of hospital patients, she developed a deep interest in science and technology. Her ambition is to one day find a solution to fix injuries caused by bone trauma, to help patients suffering from serious bone injuries to recover and improve their quality of life. This has motivated her to develop advanced materials for medical applications.
