Biography summary

Dr Tan’s principal teaching and research interests are in corrosion science and engineering and their applications for enhancing the reliability and durability of civil and industrial infrastructures. His work 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 prediction, corrosion inhibition and anti-corrosion coatings, to industry engagement and contracted research on issues such as pitting corrosion of external and internal oil pipeline, and corrosion of desalination pipeline weldments. He is a Program Leader of the Energy Pipelines Cooperative Research Centre Australia. He is the author of 168 publications and approximately 100 industry reports todate, and a research book entitled 'Heterogeneous Electrode Processes and Localized Corrosion' (2013 John Wiley & Sons). He is also the Asia Pacific Editor for the Corrosion Engineering, Science and Technology (Formerly known as British Corrosion Journal, since 1965)
