Prof. Dr. Ir. Dodi Nandika, MS, IPU

Professor of Forest Product Technology Study Program

Expertise : Entomology and Phytopathology


Research focus on Termite Control Technology and Wood Destruction Pests. Some of the innovations include:

  1. Process of Quality Improvement of Wood with Chitosan Compounds (Patent, Number P046.2015 A)
  2. Cultivation of Soil Termites in the Laboratory (Patent Registration Process)
  3. Standard Method for Testing the Effect of Bait Destruction of Soil Termite Colonies in the Laboratory (Patent Registration Process)
  4. Integrated Spring Back Wood Control Technique with Circumcision Impregnation in the Pre-Compaction Stage (Patent Registration Process).
  5. Application of Tree Health Check Technology (including defects due to termite attacks) based on sonic tomography. This technology utilizes the sound wave propagation speed on the tree trunk evaluated. The result is a graphic image that is accompanied by color. Pink and blue illustrate that there are holes, deformed, weathered, or burrowing insects inside the tree trunk.
