Dr Filicia Wicaksana



Dr Filicia Wicaksana completed an MSc and DIC from Imperial College London. She obtained her PhD from the University of New South Wales, Australia. Before joining the University of Auckland, she was a Senior Research Fellow in Singapore Membrane Technology Centre, Nanyang Technological University.

Her current research interests include membrane processes for water and wastewater treatment (microfiltration, ultrafiltration), membrane fouling (fouling studies, fouling control strategies, fouling sensors), techniques for observation of particle deposition and hydrodynamics in membrane filtration systems, membrane processes for desalination and food processing (ultrafiltration, forward osmosis and membrane distillation).
