About

Hello! I am Hakim L. Malasan, lecturer at the Astronomy Study Program and researcher at Astronomy Division

of the Faculty of Mathematics & Natural Sciences, Institut Teknologi Bandung. I completed my B.Sc. in Astronomy in 1985. Under support from the Hitachi Scholarship Foundation, I pursued my study at the Department of Astronomy,

School of Graduate Sciences, the University of Tokyo. I finished my M.Sc. degree in 1989, and subsequently completed my D.Sc. in 1992. Upon my return to homeland, I did a short training in optical instrumentation, i.e. CCD camera and spectrograph.

My interest is on stars. My dissertation dealed with the multiple nature of central stars of planetary nebulae.  I investigated planetary nebulae A63, HFG1 and LT5 using the 1.88 m telescope at Okayama Astrophysical Observatory, 91 cm telescope at Dodaira Observatory and 2.4 m telescope of the University of Hawaii at Mauna Kea Observatory.

Now, apart of stellar physics, I mostly work with astronomical instrumentations in my institute. We are trying to make

full use of small size telescope.
