Country of Origin:
What brought you to the Center for Technology in Government?
I have always had a keen interest on e-government issues, considering that it is newly implemented in my country. Even before I joined the Public Administration PhD program at the University at Albany, I often came across publications from CTG when I researched e-government from my home country. Hence, I noted CTG as one of the leader in e-government research and projects. Since then, I hoped that I could learn more and shape my research ability by joining CTG.
What did you do prior to coming to CTG?
After completing my Master of Accounting degree from the University of Melbourne, Australia in 2003, I worked in the University of Muhammadiyah at Malang, one of the biggest Islamic universities in Indonesia. Part of my job was managing the internet training program for new students and also managing and designing on-going computer-related training. In 2007, I joined a transnational collaborative project between local government in Indonesia and counterparts from the Netherlands as Secretary for the Indonesian counterpart. In 2008, I received the Fulbright Presidential Scholarship for PhD study to attend the University at Albany.
What are your plans/goals for the future?
After the completion of my PhD study, I will return to Indonesia and continue as faculty member at the University of Muhammadiyah at Malang.
How can CTG help you reach your goal for the future?
I hope the tasks I am learning in CTG will enhance my research skills as well as my perspective in looking at research issues. To have both quantitative and qualitative analytical skills will expand my research scope and point of view. The practical skills that I hope to learn while I am working at CTG will be beneficial in opening new work opportunities as a consultant in Indonesia.
What is a little known or interesting fact about you?
I like listening to Bob Marley and reading Chinese Martial Arts fiction.
