Dr. Nurmalia is a faculty member of Product Design Engineering study programme at Universitas Prasetiya Mulya, Indonesia. Her expertise is in the testing and evaluation of engineering products and infrastructure, particularly in non-destructive testing and evaluation (NDT&E). Her work in the past 7 years focused on the development of technologies associated with NDT&E, specifically with ultrasonic evaluation techniques. Her latest research has focused on the application of ultrasonic guided waves for use in pipe inspection, which is also important for inspection of tubes, rods, or any plate structures. She also contributes to the development of an alternative transducer design, i.e. Electromagnetic Acoustic Transducer (EMAT).
