Profile

Prof. Akhmad Herman Yuwono lahir di Jakarta pada 25 Juni 1970. Beliau menyelesaikan S1 nya di Departemen Teknik Metalurgi FTUI pada tahun 1994. Gelar masternya diperoleh pada tahun 1998 dari University of Cambridge, (United Kingdom) dengan support Cambridge Overseas Trust-British Embassy Scholarships, sedangkan gelar Ph.D diperolehnya dari National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore pada tahun 2007 dengan disertasi dalam bidang Inorganic-Organic Nanohybrids untuk aplikasi fotonik. Untuk keperluan ini beliau berhasil mengembangkan suatu metode unik yang mampu menggabungkan teknik kimiawi basah sol-gel dan perlakuan pasca-hidrotermal pada temperatur rendah untuk memperoleh tingkat kristalinitas tinggi pada fasa nanopartikel inorganik dan pada saat yang sama mempertahankan intergritas matriks organik, yang mana tidak mungkin diperoleh jika menggunakan teknik termal konvensional dengan pemanasan semata. Hasil penelitiannya telah dipublikasi di berbagai jurnal dengan faktor dampak yang tinggi. Beliau mendapat gelar profesornya di tahun 2013 dari Departemen Teknik Metalurgi dan Material Fakultas Teknik Universitas Indonesia. Saat ini penelitiannya dikembangkan lebih lanjut mencakup pemanfaatan nanostruktur TiO2 dan ZnO untuk aplikasi sel surya tersensitasi zat pewarna (dye sensitized solar cell), pembersih swadaya (self-cleaning) dan pemanas transparan (tranparent heater). Termasuk dalam minat risetnya adalah pemanfaatan bahan alami mineral dan tumbuhan asli Indonesia sebagai sumber prekursor bagi aplikasi nanostruktur di atas.

Dalam periode tahun 2014-2018 Prof. Akhmad Herman Yuwono menjalankan tugas sebagai Manajer Riset dan Pengabdian Masyarakat Fakultas Teknik Universitas Indonesia. Setelah berhasil menunaikan amanah tersebut, saat ini beliau mendapatkan penugasan lanjut sebagai Kepala Departemen Teknik Metalurgi dan Material Fakultas Teknik Universitas Indonesia (DTMM-FTUI) periode 2018-2022.

Sebagai dosen, Prof. Akhmad Herman Yuwono mengajar mata kuliah : Teknologi Keramik untuk mahasiswa S1, dan: Metodologi Penelitian, Material Teknik dan Teknologi Nano untuk tingkat magister, serta Metode Penelitian lanjut bagi mahasiswa doktoral FTUI.

Prof. Dr. Akhmad Herman Yuwono was born in Jakarta on June 25th 1970. He obtained his bachelor degree in Metallurgical Engineering from Universitas Indonesia in 1994. He continued his study for master level at University of Cambridge-UK and received the degree in 1998, through support from Cambridge Overseas Trust-British Embassy Scholarships. His PhD degree was taken from National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2007 with specialty on the fabrication and characterization of inorganic-organic nanohybrids for photonic application. For this purpose, Dr. Yuwono has developed a modified technique combining wet chemistry sol-gel technique and post-hydrothermal treatment at low temperature in order to obtain highly crystalline inorganic nanoparticles while maintaining the integrity of organic matrix, where such effect could not be obtained through conventional thermal annealing/calcination process. The results of investigation have been published in several high impact journals. His current research includes the fabrication of nanostructure inorganic semiconductor oxides for energy applications such as dye sensitized solar cell, as well as self-cleaning and transparent heating windows. This also include his research interest in the use of Indonesia natural-indigenous mineral and plantation as the potential resources/precursors for the above nanostructural applications.

He was awarded as a full-professor at Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Faculty of Engineering Universitas Indonesia in 2013, and furthermore he was assigned as Associate Dean for Research and Community Services at Faculty of Engineering Universitas Indonesia from 2014-2018. Having completed successfully his duty in dean's office, now he is continuing his service as Head of Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Faculty of Engineering from 2018-2022.

As a lecturer, Prof. Akhmad Herman Yuwono teaches several subjects : Ceramics Technology for bachelor students, as well as Research Methodology, Engineering Materials, and Nanotechnology for master students, and also Advanced Research Methodology for doctoral students at Faculty of Engineering Universitas Indonesia
