Aaronn Avit Ajeng, Ph.D.

Researcher in Biology and Biochemistry

Dr. Aaronn Avit Ajeng is currently a Biologist at the Institute of Biological Sciences, Universiti Malaya. Born and raised in Miri, Sarawak, Aaronn obtained his Ph.D. from Universiti Malaya (UM) in the field of Biochemistry and Biology in 2.5 years. For his doctoral thesis, he bioengineered a carbon-based material, biochar with effective Bacillus consortium with response surface methodology (RSM) software and investigate the optimal conditions for microbial survival, as well tested its efficiency on the growth response of Elaeis guineensis and analyse the metabolite profiles through metabolomics. His invention has been filled for national patent/intellectual property protection. For his outstanding achievements, he has received several international awards from Human Life Advancement Foundation (HLAF) in 2022 and Rising Star Scientist from University of Nottingham in 2022. Outside of academia, he enjoys engaging with communities through creating meaningful contents on social platforms and public awareness programs.

Biochar-loaded Plant Probiotics, For A Greener and Sustainable Agriculture


Biochar emerges as a carrier for microorganisms in various biotechnological fields. The interest on this carbonaceous material stems from its physicochemical properties and microenvironment which can potentially harbor bacteria. In biotechnology, we are driven by the sustainable concept in our inventions and innovations. That is why, at the University of Malaya, my work focuses on developing a sustainable biofertilizer that is formulated using biochar in addition with plant beneficial microorganisms, in hope to reduce the application of chemical fertilizers in agriculture, at the same time boost the agricultural productivity in the region. This video was submitted to the Global Young Scientist Summit (GYSS 2022) organized by the National Research Foundation, the Prime Minister Office Singapore that will take place in Singapore next year. I talked about my research and the inspirations behind it. Hope you enjoy!
