 Dr Zaleha Mustafa joined the Universiti Teknikal Malaysia Melaka in May 2005, progressing from tutor and subsequently being appointed as senior lecturer upon completion her Phd. 

Her first degree was in Materials Engineering at the University of Science Malaysia and upon graduation has work as a Materials Engineer at Senju  Malaysia Sdn  Bhd. She then pursued her Msc in Biomaterials from University of London and graduated with distinction before completed her PhD at the University of Glasgow in the field of polymer composite for biomedical materials.  Her thesis   research was on the fatigue behaviour of the bone replacement materials. She was also head of Materials Department in Faculty of Manufacturing Engineering from 2006-2008 and served as Manager of the Advance Manufacturing Centre of Excellent for year 2015-2016.

Research Interest

Her research interests are the development and use of bioactive materials for bone augmentation and replacement. This work has mainly concentrated on the development of composites of polymers filled with bioactive ceramics based on the mineral phase of bone. 

In parallel she has been involved in projects on the mechanical characterization of the natural fibre composite focusing on impact and fatigue behaviour as well as fabrication influences on the composite system for various applications
