  • Doctoral Researcher


Nurul is a 40-year-old Malaysian pursuing a PhD in Household food waste reduction at Loughborough University. He was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur and has always been interested in environmental sustainability and the impact of human behaviour on the planet. As he learned more about the issue of food waste, he became passionate about finding solutions to this pressing problem. Nurul realized that food waste not only has significant environmental consequences, but it also has economic and social implications. In Malaysia, for example, food waste accounts for a significant portion of the country’s solid waste and contributes to greenhouse gas emissions.  

Nurul pursued a PhD in household food waste reduction at Loughborough University to address this issue. Through his research, he aims to identify effective strategies and solutions for reducing food waste at the household level. Specifically, Nurul is interested in exploring the factors contributing to household food waste and developing interventions to change behaviour and reduce waste. 

Nurul’s passion for this topic is evident in his dedication to his studies and his desire to impact food waste reduction positively. He hopes that his research will contribute to the academic understanding of this issue and lead to real-world solutions that can help households reduce their food waste and create a more sustainable future.  

Title of thesis: Development of a framework for sustainable household food waste prevention

This research will contribute to a more comprehensive understanding of the reasons behind Household Food Waste. The finding of this study can help policymakers and stakeholders develop more effective and sustainable targeted interventions through policies and programs that can address the root cause of this issue and encourage households to adopt more sustainable behaviours and practices.

Addressing this problem can ultimately lead to improved environmental sustainability, social equity, and economic efficiency in the food system, benefiting individuals and communities. The proposed framework aims to develop solutions that could facilitate behaviour change interventions that could prevent HFW on a global scale.
