i like sex, smoking, I work as a researcher in the Centre for
Environmental Technology, Agency for the Assessment and Application of
Technology (BPPT), Jakarta since 1996. My major is physical
oceanography. First time work at BPPT, I involved in the SEAWATCH
Indonesia Project, a cooperation project between Indonesia and Norway.
I work in this project until 2000 and then took a master program in
Department of Geophysics and Meteorology, Institute of Technology
Bandung until 2002. My thesis is about El-Nino, Dipole Mode, and
Monsoon interaction in Indonesia region. In 2003, I went to Hamburg,
Germany to take my PhD in Institute of Oceanography, Hamburg
University until 2007 and back to work again in BPPT since September
2007. My PhD research is modelling over- and compound tides of the
Irish and Celtic Seas using variational data assimilation methods. Now
I am involving in BPPT’s global warming project and trying to
develop a biogeochemical model for Indonesian waters.
