Hasnun Arif earned his first degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Technische Hoschschule Bingen, Germany in 2010. During the final year of his undergraduate study, he was offered a scholarship by Universiti Malaysia Pahang (UMP) to pursue a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Malaya in Kuala Lumpur, which he graduated with distinction in 2012. After that, he embarked on his PhD journey at UMP where he studied about the head injury sustained by soccer players due to heading maneouvre. He completed his PhD study in 2016, then continue to serve UMP as a senior lecturer.

His research interests include finite element modelling of the interaction between human and sports equipment, instrumentation of sports equipment, and injury prevention particularly with regards to sports and traffic accidents. His work aims to apply engineering principles in sports not only to enhance the performance of an athlete, but also to prevent injuries.

Besides research work, Hasnun also involves in managing journals, namely the Movement, Health and Exercise (MoHE Journal) under the Ministry of Education of Malaysia, where he now serves as a Section Editor. He is also the Founding Editor-in-Chief of Mekatronika, a UMP mechatronics journal, and also currently serves as one of the coordinators of Open Journal System (OJS) in UMP. He considers himself a computer geek who enjoys graphic design and website development. Hasnun also loves music and plays guitar and/or drum for a band at the faculty, known as Suave.
