Dr. Ardiansyah Ibnu Koeshidayatullah

Assistant Professor, Department of Geosciences

Ardiansyah Koeshidayatullah is an Assistant Professor in the Geosciences Department, College of Petroleum Engineering and Geosciences (CPG), KFUPM. His primary research interests focus on (i) integrated carbonate reservoir characterization, including stratigraphic modelling and novel geochemistry; and (ii) Artificial Intelligence in Geosciences. He was a Presidential Doctoral Scholar at the University of Manchester, UK and a visiting research student at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences, University of Miami, USA. Before joining KFUPM, he was a joint postdoctoral research fellow at the Paleobiology and Basin Petroleum System Modeling (BPSM) Group, Stanford University, USA.
