Aditya R. Kartadikaria, D.Eng.

Postdoctoral Fellows
​Ocean Modelling Postdoctoral Fellow​​​​


​​Aditya (RK) is currently engaged in ocean modeling research of the Red Sea under the guidance of Professor Ibrahim Hoteit. RK's research is supported by the Saudi Aramco-KAUST Marine Environmental Research Center.

Research Interests

Searching scientific evidences to understand carbon budget in tropical inland seas, especially in the Indonesian seas through marine observation and modeling, aiming at revealing actual CO2 sink/source characteristics with its mechanism and projecting its impact to climate change related issues.
