PhD Candidate

About Me

PhD candidate focusing on optimization and computer simulation. Working under the research project of Bosch Thermotechnology, I aim to develop an automatic optimization tool to improve the heat transfer and pressure drop of a heat exchanger using a commercial CFD software.

2014-present: PhD candidate in Thermal Engineering
2012-2014: MSc in Mechanical Engineering, University of Twente, Netherlands
Thesis: "Oscillatory Flow in Jet Pumps: Setup Design and Experiments"
2007-2012: BSc in Mechanical Engineering, Institut Teknologi Bandung, Indonesia
Thesis: "Study of Overall Thermal Transfer Value for Green Building Application on a High Rise Building in Jakarta"
Additional activities: supervising master students, teaching the Energy and Heat Transfer course for bachelor students.
