Biography

C.T Ratnam is a senior research Scientist and head of “Polymer blend and Composite” group at Malaysian Nuclear Agency. She obtained her B App Sc (Hon)in Polymer Science and Technology, MSc industrial Technology and PhD in the field of Radiation Processing of Polymers from University Science Malaysia. Her research interests include radiation processing of polymer blends and composites, radiation compatible polymers, nanocomposites and recycling of polymers. Since joining Malaysian Nuclear Agency in 1992, Chantara Thevy Ratnam lead about 20 national and international R&D projects which totals about RM 1.6 Million. Her commitment and dedication has driven her to numerous successes both nationally and internationally, with some of her findings are in the process of commercialisation. Amongst her achievement in R&D include formulating radiation compatible polymers for medical applications, pioneering research on surface coating of rubber gloves with hydrogel by using radiation technique, developing radiation crosslinkable polymer blend formulations for use in the automobile industry and developing polymer compounds from used rubbers (recycle rubber). Ten of her research findings have been patented and she has about 200 publications (including 99 ISI Indexed Journals, 2 books, 6 book chapters and more than 10 invited lectures for international conference. Her invention entitled “Radiation Sterilisable PVC Compounds for Medical Products” was awarded Gold Medal with congratulations from Jury and the top most award, Grand Prix of the 34TH International Exhibition of Inventions New Techniques and Products, Geneva, 2006 - A FIRST FOR MALAYSIA IN 34 YEARS. Besides that she was also awarded more than 35 national and international awards. She is a Editor for 5 journals refereed more than100 ISI/Scopus indexed journal articles, external examiner for more than 25 post graduates, field Supervisor for 36 post graduates (14 PhD,22 MSc) & more than 100 Undergraduate projects. She is recognised as TOP RESEARCH SCIENTIST MALAYSIA by Academy Sciences of Malaysia
