Welcome to my personal website, I am a scientist and an engineer who is currently hold a position as an Associate Lecturer at the, Dept of Mechanical Engineering, The University of Melbourne. I am part of the University's renowned fluid mechanics research group. I am also an ITC (Infrared Training Center) Level 1 Thermographer, and part of the accredited Thermography professional training team at the University of Melbourne.
My research interests are focusing on experimental fluid mechanics, particularly on high Reynolds number turbulent flows, flow controls, drag reduction mechanisms, and rough surface flows. I also look into environmental flows such as at the effects of biofoulings on marine engineering applications and wind turbine and the aerodynamic. Recently I have been involved in several defence researches, these include Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle aerodynamics and morphing wings, submarine hydrodynamics, and helicopter landing pad aerodynamics for destroyer ship. Most of my scientific works, including journal and conference papers, are in my publication section. Please visit my Google Scholar page to view the impact of these research.
My experimental expertise is both in the laboratory (wind and water tunnel, channel flow, and pipe flow) and field (operating ship and operating aircraft) environment. I have significant experiences in using various flow measurement techniques such as Hot-Wire Anemometry, Hot-Films Anemometry, Pitot tube, Cobra probe, and Laser Doppler Anemometry. Beyond fluid mechanics, I also have experience in design and manufacturing process, this includes 3D CAD drawing, operating CNC-Machine, 3D printing, and moulding - casting of complex and micro-sized model. As an ITC Level 1 Thermographer I am also qualified to conduct thermography analysis on various engineering applications.
News in various media about my research, laboratory, non academic activities, and some articles that I wrote can be found in the media section.
I teach several engineering subjects at the University of Melbourne, namely: Mechanics, Statics, Fluid Dynamics, Engineering System Design, and Capstone projects. Details about these subjects can be found in the teaching activities section.
Apart from scientific and teaching activities, I also do photography for aerospace magazines. In this website you can find some samples of my shot from various airshows in UK and Australia. Some of these photos have been published by Aerospace magazines in Indonesia.
I also enjoy arts, particularly paintings, here I have attached several selections of famous sketches and paintings that have fluid mechanics aspects in it, including its associated science papers.
Finally, I always open to any domestic or International joint research and collaboration. If you have any interesting research idea please do not hesitate to contact me.
