Assistant Professor

My research interests lie in polymer matrix composites. My earlier work was about adhesive development in which I gave fillers in adhesive in order to enhance its mechanical performance. During master programme, my research focused on the shape memory composites without shape memory constituents and interphase of composites, the phase in between the matrix and the fibres. In the next following years, I will work on the environmentally-friendly composites such as recycled polymer composites and nano-cellulose composites both in its manufacturing process and the characterisation especially to tackle global warming issue; I have got funding from LPDP to continue my PhD at Imperial College London (Rank 9 in the world (2019)) under supervision of Dr. Koon-Yang Lee. Besides, I am also the founder of Komposit Indonesia, an online magazzine for giving information about composite written in Bahasa.
