Research Interests

Dr. Henry J. Tanudjaja's research interest revolves around membrane filtration technology, from membrane fouling to understanding and improvement of the filtration process via machine learning applications.He studied the membrane fouling phenomenon due to various foulants, such as oil emulsion and protein, and his current research direction is exploring the application of machine learning in membrane filtration technology.
