Zaleha Kassim obtained her Ph.D. in Aquatic Biology in 2001 from University Putra Malaysia. She completed her Bachelor degree in Biology in 1996 after working for nine years as a trained high school teacher. She received her Diploma in Science and Education in 1983 from University Pertanian Malaysia. She is one of the Malaysians in the Japanese Society for Promotion of Science (JSPS), collaborating in zooplankton ecological research group with other members from Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and Japan. She is now the associate member of the JSPS Alumni Society. Her work on knowledge transfer program between university and community/industry is commendable as she had been granted KTP grant from Ministry of Higher Education for 4 times; project 1 between UMT and PPKJBS (2011-2012), project more...
