Research Fellow, International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory, Portugal
Dr. Purwidyantri is currently a research fellow at INL Portugal, has an extensive experience of more than 10 years in multidiscipline research and multinational environment which allow her to closely collaborate with numbers of leading researcher. Joining INL in May 2019, she gets involved on the development of micro-total analysis system (microTAS) for a wide range of application, such as food, biomedical and environmental screening. She optimizes the performance of graphene-based microfluidic sensor for high sensitivity and specificity in DNA detection. She conducts interfacial surface engineering for optimized biomolecular binding to be carried out in FET and electrochemical platforms. She previously served the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) at Research Unit for Clean Technology and was a project leader of several environmental screening platform development projects. She was a postdoctoral fellow at Biosensor Group, Chang Gung University, Taiwan and working on Au nanostructure for multi-implemented sensor and high-k materials for biomedical projects involving Chang Gung Memorial Hospital and Taiwan Semiconductor and Manufacturing Company (TSMC). Agnes received her PhD degree in Biomedical Engineering from Chang Gung University, Taiwan in 2017, with thesis work on the development of DNA sensor for kidney disease. Her Master´s degree was in Biotechnology and received in 2013 from Asia University, Taiwan, where she worked to exploit the enrichment of medicinal fungi through pulsed-UV light exposure. She obtained her Bachelor´s degree in Food Technology in 2007 from Soegijapranata Catholic University, Indonesia, with a project investigating corn rice physicochemical and organoleptic properties. Her research interest covers a wide range of disciplines including biosensor technology, green technology, sensing application for biomedical, food safety and quality, and environmental screening.
