My profile

Agus Saptoro                                    agus top

I am a Professor at Department of Chemical and Energy Engineering, Curtin University Malaysia. I received Bachelor of Engineering (First Class Honours) in chemical engineering from Gadjah Mada University Indonesia and obtained my PhD in chemical engineering (process system engineering) from Curtin University Australia. I had also research/academic fellowship experiences with University of Hyogo, Japan and University of Aberdeen, UK. My research expertise and interest include intelligent data and image analysis, process modelling, simulation and optimisation, energy efficient CO2 capture processes, and thermal engineering especially microwave assisted crystallisation technology. I am a Chartered Professional Engineer (CPEng) with Engineers Australia, a Senior Fellow of Higher Education Academy, UK, an Associate Member of The Institution of Chemical Engineers, UK and a National Executive Member of Malaysian Process Control Society. I had served in various leadership positions at Curtin Malaysia including Department of Chemical Engineering Programme Coordinator, Faculty’s Chair of Students and Alumni Relation Committee, Faculty’s Research Cluster Head and Faculty’s Associate Dean of R&D. I am currently holding a position as Director of Curtin Malaysia Graduate School and Deputy Dean of R&D. I am also an Associate Editor of International Journal of Food Engineering and a reviewer to various scientific journals in the areas of chemical engineering, energy and neural network modelling.
