I am a Ph.D. researcher in the Architecture and Urbanism Research Group at the University of Leeds since February 2023. My research title is Landscape Design Modelings of Children-Friendly Green Open Space for Trauma Healing. A case study: Cianjur Earthquake Affected Area in West Java, Indonesia. 

I have over 15 years of working experiences as academician and professional in Landscape Architecture both in Indonesia and abroad. My previous experience was a lecturer in Landscape Design and Planning division, Departemen of Landscape Acrhitecture IPB University. I also invited as a guest lecturer in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Japan University. While doing my academic works, I involved in projects around Indonesia and other countries. I have been joining International Federation of Landscape Architects as council member since 2017 and become Asia Pacific Representative for Emerging Professional Advocate (EPA) a committe under IFLA World. I also have interest in landscape architecture student's activities such as competition and workshop, so i am involved as a judge in various national and international events. I won some national landscape design competitions. I have served humanity as volunteer with Salam Aid Indonesia for post-disaster area.

Research interests

My research is about landscape design modelings of green open spaces for children in post-disaster areas. It is essential to consider the needs of children for play, learning, and social interaction. The model could include comprehensive educational, physical, social-emotional, intellectual, and spiritual aspects for children. Research on this topic focuses on the effectiveness of specific design elements in promoting healing and reducing trauma in children. It may also examine the cultural and social factors that influence landscape designs. Therefore, landscape design modellings for trauma healing in natural disaster-affected areas could create safe, welcoming, and healing spaces for a community, especially children. It can create a disaster-responsive country and have a resilient future generation. The main purpose of this study is to produce the ideal landscape design criteria, modelling and guidelines for children-friendly open space as trauma healing by identifying all related aspects and spatial elements in natural disaster vulnerable areas in Indonesia
