Short Biography

Dr. Yuni K. Krisnandi carried out project on Study on ETS-10 titanosilicate as photocatalysts for her Master and PhD studies under supervision of Professor Russell Howe. In 2007-2009 she had an opportunity to carry out postdoc at Leibniz Institute for Catalysis (LIKAT) in Berlin, Germany. Her main research project was etherification of glycerol using Cs/zeolite. When returning to UI, she became a secretary for postgraduate programme at Department of Chemistry until 2010. Then, she was selected to be one of the 2nd batch of UI research core lecturers (Dosen inti penelitian). As results, in 2013 she started her own group research: Solid Inorganic Framework, and actively received research grants, from UI, Indonesia, and abroad. She teaches some inorganic Chemistry subjects, aluminasilicate compounds, Solid State Chemistry and Research Methodology (Master Programme). In 2013 she was the PI of “Chemical Safety and Security Enhancement at the Department of Chemistry Universitas Indonesia” funded by The U.S. Department of State’s Chemical Security Engagement Program (CSP). While in 2014 she received Research Grant for Basic Science Individual Scientist from UNESCO-TWAS (Synthesis and characterization of heterogeneous zeolite catalysts in biomass conversion to chemicals). She is member of editorial board of Makara J. Sci since 2015. Besides teaching and research, she also takes part in academic quality assurance activities. In 2012, she was the task-force leader for ‘Self-Assessment Report’ for AUN-QA assessment for undergraduate programme at Department of Chemistry. Since February 2015 she has been appointed as Deputy of Academic Affair at Academic Quality Assurance Board (BPMA-UI).
