About Me

I graduated from SMA Dangung-Dangung High School in 1987 and immediately entered Andalas University, Padang. I graduated with honors from Andalas University in April 1992 with a bachelor degree in chemistry. I then worked as a teacher at Indonesian College of the Arts and Sciences, Surakarta, Central Java, for 5 years. During the last two years of that period, I also served as the head of office of information and technology at the same school. I entered graduate school at the University of Indonesia, Jakarta, in 1997 and received a masters degree in materials science in 1999. I worked on the staff of the Research Center for Materials Science at the same school before entering the Doctoral program in 2000. In October 2001 I joined Samuel Ginn College of Engineering Auburn University, USA, as a research scholar in my effort to finish the doctoral degree, but then I decided to join Materials Engineering as a full time graduate student. I entered Materials Engineering Program in Spring 2003 and completed the qualification for masters degree in 2005. I then continued for the doctoral degrees and earned my Ph.D. in Summer 2008. Now I am teaching at the Deparment of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering, University of Indonesia.

I don't know how to describe myself, but you'll know when you get to know me better. Anyway, I'm a bit quite but I'm a nice person. I enjoy spending time working in a laboratory; running the tensile machine, high temperature furnace, and electron microscope. But during the free time, outdoor things seem to attract me; camping, traveling, and hiking. I also like to enjoy spending time doing digital photography and video editing or trying something new; I'm quite familiar with Adobe, both Photoshop and Premiere. I do also like to enjoy a quiet night listening to a slow rock or an evergreen. Sometimes I watch science fiction.
