I am a senior lecturer at the Faculty of Engineering, Universitas Gadjah Mada, and have served as the Head of the Engineering Study Program in the Department of Nuclear Engineering and Engineering Physics since 2016. My academic journey in Acoustics began with a Master’s degree in Physics from Brigham Young University, USA, and advanced with a PhD from the University of Michigan in Architectural Acoustics.

As an active member of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) and the Audio Engineering Society (AES), I returned to my institution in 2011 to co-found Insgreeb. This initiative focuses on integrating building physics and acoustics with instrumentation and smart systems to enhance building performance and occupant comfort.

Renowned for my expertise in Building Acoustics, Audio, and Green Building Science, I have secured multiple research grants both nationally (such as PTUPT and Collaborative Research from the Ministry of Research, Technology and Higher Education) and internationally (with the Australia-Indonesia Center and universities like Salford UK and Hiroshima). My research interests include acoustics measurement, sound level mapping, modeling and simulation, acoustics material, and instrumentation, applied to building and its environment. I am also engaged in building modeling and simulation in indoor environmental quality parameters like lighting, thermal, and air quality.
