Biography

I have some 30 years of research, teaching and industry engagement experiences in applied electrochemistry, corrosion science and engineering, and their applications for enhancing the reliability and durability of civil and industrial infrastructures. My research over the past two decades spanned the range from fundamental study on issues such as electrochemical heterogeneity and corrosion science, and applied research on issues such as corrosion testing and monitoring, localised corrosion and corrosion inhibition, to industry engagement and contracted research on issues such as pitting corrosion of internal oil pipeline and corrosion of desalination pipeline weldments. I have contributed to electrochemical methods for corrosion testing, monitoring and prediction and corrosion inhibitor and anti-corrosion coating research. I am the author of some 150 publications and an invited research book (Y.J. Tan, 2013, Heterogeneous Electrode Processes and Localized Corrosion, John Wiley & Sons Inc., USA, 246pp). I started a new corrosion laboratory at Deakin University's Waurn Ponds campus, successfully managed a National Centre of Excellence in Desalination (NCEDA) project on Smart Material for Corrosion Management, and led the Energy Pipeline Cooperative Research Centre (EPCRC) program as a Program Leader. The corrosion engineering program has now grown to include 4 Research Fellows, 8 research students and 6 engineering project students, conducting various research projects including those funded by NCEDA ($450,000 over 3 years) and EPCRC (planned funding allocation is approximately $3.5m over 7 years). My principal teaching experiences are in Corrosion Science and Engineering and related academic areas including Materials Engineering, Engineering Chemistry and Applied Chemistry. I have developed a comprehensive teaching portfolio in corrosion science and engineering, and their applications for enhancing the reliability and durability of civil and industrial infrastructures. I have successfully supervised seven PhD research students working on corrosion engineering research. Currently I am supervising six PhD research students as a principal supervisor. I have also supervised over 50 professional Masters, Honours and final year level project students on various academic positions.
