Jolius attended Universiti Putra Malaysia, where he earned his B.Eng. (Chemical) in 2002 and his M.Sc. (Env. Eng.) in 2004. The Product Formulation Group in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Loughborough University, UK, awarded him a PhD in 2009 after he began his studies there on a scholarship in 2006. Jolius serves on the ETAC Accreditation Panel (BEM), the MyRA IPT Panel (KPT), SETARA Panel (KPT), KKP Panel (KPT), and the FRGS Panel (KPT). Since 2020, Jolius has held the position of full professor at the FKKSA UMP. He helped establish the University of Malaysia Pahang's Centre for Research in Advanced Fluid and Processes (Fluid Centre), which is formerly known as Centre of Excellence for Advanced Research in Fluid Flow (CARiFF). Computer fluid dynamics (CFD) and population balance modelling were Dr. Gimbun's areas of expertise. With over 20 years of expertise in CFD from his time at UPM, UMP, and Loughborough, he has worked on a wide variety of projects, from algorithm creation to sophisticated flow simulation. He had run CFD simulations for both academic and commercial purposes with Petronas, Lynas, BASF, Carsten Ranico, Perwaja, among others. Over the years, he has expanded his research to food engineering (herbal processing, protein) and biofuel (syngas, biodiesel, and bioethanol). Jolius belongs to the world's top 2% of scientists, according to Stanford University.
