Dr. Mohd Sabri Mohd Ghazali is an Associate Professor of Material Sciences at Universiti
Malaysia Terengganu, where he leads a research field focused on understanding varistors’s
performance, anticorrosive coatings and solar cell. Dr. Mohd Sabri received his Ph.D. in
Applied Optics from Universiti Putra Malaysia in 2013, where he conducted groundbreaking
research on the Zinc-Oxide Based Varistor Ceramics using Solid State Route and Co-
Precipitation Processing. His work on the role of varistor ceramic and plant-based
anticorrosive coatings has been published in several top-tier scientific journals and has
received widespread recognition within the respective field.
After completing his Ph.D., Dr. Mohd Sabri became an academic fellow at Universiti
Malaysia Terengganu, where he shifted his focus on multiple research areas, while attending
numerous conferences. His current research interest builds on the application of perovskite
oxide to enhance the performance of varistors. This work aims to unravel the effects of
perovskite materials to increase the dielectric properties, giving the varistor a superior
capability to withstand electric surge energy. Dr. Sabri’s lab uses a combination of cutting-
edge techniques, including X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy.
Dr. Mohd Sabri is a recognized researcher in the field of Material Sciences, and has
received numerous awards and honors for his research, including the prestigious Gold
Award at the Invention, Innovation and Technology Exhibition of Malaysia. He has also been
invited to speak at conferences and symposia around the world, where he shares his
insights on the latest developments in the field of varistor ceramics.
In addition to his research, Dr. Mohd Sabri is also actively involved in mentoring and
teaching. He is passionate about promoting diversity and inclusion in STEM fields, and
works to create an inclusive and supportive environment for his students and colleagues. Dr.
Mohd Sabri is a dedicated teacher and mentor, and has been recognized for his excellence
in teaching and mentoring with awards from both his university and national organizations.
Overall, Dr. Mohd Sabri is a dynamic and accomplished researcher whose work has
significantly advanced our understanding of the perovskite material impacts on surge
protection devices. His research interest is at the forefront of the field of semiconductors,
and his dedication to teaching and mentoring has inspired and influenced the next
generation of scientists.
