Esa Prakasa received B.Eng. in Nuclear Engineering (1998) and M.Eng. in Electrical Engineering (2001) from Universitas Gadjah Mada, Indonesia. He obtained his PhD in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (2014), from Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS, Malaysia. He is a researcher at Research Center for Informatics, Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) since 2005.
His research interests are computer vision, 3D medical imaging, visual inspection, and pattern recognition. He has been involved in some research projects related with digital image processing and pattern recognition for various applications. He has contributed to develop an imaging based technique for assessing psoriasis skin disease. The image analysis method was applied to quantify diseases severity based on several skin lesion properties. He has conducted an intensive collaboration research with dermatologists at Dermatology Department, Hospital Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The research project was conducted from 2008 to 2013 and have successfully recruited around 200 psoriasis patients. Since 2014, he has been involved in a collaborative project between LIPI and CERN, Switzerland. He contributed to develop visual inspection methods for assessing sensor chip qualities at production and detector construction stages. The detector will be used in ALICE (A Large Ion Collider
Experiment) Project, one of the largest physic experiments in the world hosted by CERN. He has also successfully secured two years research grant from The Ministry of Research, Technology, and Higher Education, Republic of Indonesia for conducting research project on wood identification by using computer vision methods. The research is a collaborative project between LIPI and Forest Products Research and Development Center, Ministry of Environment and Forestry, Indonesia. He has published papers in journals, international conferences, book chapters, and patents.
