Personal statement

Dr. Jully Tan obtained her first degree in Chemical Engineering and Master of Environmental Engineering from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). She then obtained Ph.D. from Universiti Malaya, research focuses in life cycle assessment and optimization for microalgae production.

Dr. Jully has more than ten years of teaching and leadership experience in chemical and petroleum engineering program. She played significant role in leading the program curriculum development, design and review as well as matters related to accreditation. She is passionate to diverse research in the area of engineering education. This drew her to take up responsibility as senior lecturer, education focused in the School of Engineering.

Research Interests

Jully’s currently focuses engineering education research, which aims to initiate, discovery and innovation in engineering teaching and learning, specifically in Chemical Engineering discipline. She is also interested to look into complex engineering activities and problem solutions among multidisciplinary students in preparing them to enter the dynamic and rapid change of workplace.

Jully also contributes in sustainable development. Area of research includes the study of different chemical and or manufacturing production, its process selections analysis and life cycle assessment, and life cycle optimization which focus on environmental impacts (carbon footprint, water footprint, energy footprint and etc.) contributes from different process technologies.

Research Projects

Title: A Graphical Method for Carbon Footprint Reduction in Multi–Product Plants

Carbon footprint reduction has been a common trend for many industrial processes in recent years. However, few analytical tools have been developed for visualising carbon footprint reduction at the enterprise level. Carbon Footprint Composite Curves to aid decision-making was developed previously, but was limited to the production of single product. In this work, the carbon footprint reduction procedure is extended to more general cases of multiple products, in which carbon footprint of shared and independent facilities of the production line are analysed.

Title: An Integrated Analytic Hierarchy Process and Life Cycle Assessment Model for Nanocrystalline Cellulose Production

Nanocrystalline cellulose (NCC) is an emerging renewable bionanomaterial obtained from cellulosic materials such as agricultural waste. NCC has many promising applications in the field of pharmaceuticals, chemical, food and personal care. Research on NCC extraction from different cellulosic materials such as wood pulp, coconut fibre, carrot waste and oil palm empty fruit bunch (EFB) via different process routes has been widely reported, but few have been evaluated for environmental aspects using life cycle assessment (LCA).
