About Me

I obtained my doctoral degree in the University of Nottingham UK in 2018, and I have been based on the China campus since 2013. My PhD thesis focused on the interplay between sketches and mental imagery, particularly at the early design stage. I am a design researcher with an architecture background, my research interests include: study of design behaviour, embodied creativity, digital architecture and digital design cognition. Currently I am pursuing a path to obtain my PGCHE (Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education- a British recognised HE teaching qualification) whilst expanding my portfolio in architecture & design and my teaching portfolio. A typical year for me is spent in three countries: China, UK and Indonesia.

Indonesian-born, with great enthusiasm for architecture, photography, road cycling, triathlon, flying quadcopters/UAV, travelling, camping and scuba diving.  Had the opportunity to study in Indonesia and United Kingdom, and worked in Singapore and China.
