Dr Poernomo Gunawan
Lecturer, School of Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology
Poernomo Gunawan obtained PhD degree from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in 2009. Thereafter he was working as a Scientist in the Institute of Chemical & Engineering Sciences (ICES) A*STAR, developing nanomaterials for heterogeneous catalysis, such as metal oxides, supported noble metals, and mesoporous materials for petrochemical production and biomass conversion to chemical.
In April 2017, he returned to NTU to teach chemical engineering subjects, such as Chemical Thermodynamics, Chemical Reaction Engineering, and Final Year Design Project.
1) Nanomaterials fabrication and functionalization;
2) Heterogeneous catalysis and reaction engineering;
3) Renewable chemical feedstocks and energy;
4) Chemical engineering education.
  • Enhancing Design Thinking Education with AI Generative Tools for Effective Teaching and Learning
  • Facilitating Student’s Learning of Continuous Distillation with Augmented Reality for Chemistry and Chemical Engineering Students
