Dr. Isty Adhitiya Purwasena

Petroleum Microbiology and Microbial Ecology

Dr. Isty is a research expert in petroleum microbiology, biosystematics and microbial ecology. She finished her bachelor and master degree in SITH, ITB then followed by pursuing her doctoral degree in Kyushu University, Japan. Her research takes place at the interface between microbiology and petroleum engineering, with a focus interest on the exploitation of microbial diversity and its bioproducts to tackle the problems in oil and gas industries using, such as, oil recovery improvement and inhibition of microbiological-induced corrosion in oil pipeline, by using green-technology approach.
