He was born in Sulaiman Special Force Airbase - Indonesian National Air
Force Hospital, Bandung, West Java, Indonesia in 1970. He received the
B.Eng. and M.Eng. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Kanazawa
University, Japan in 1995 and 1997, respectively (Subsurface Radar Systems)
and the Ph.D. degree in Artificial System Sciences (Applied Radio Wave
and Radar Systems) from Chiba University, Japan in 2002. From 1990 to 1999,
he was a Researcher with the Agency for Assessment and Application of Technology,
Jakarta, and Education and Training Commando - Indonesian National Army
(KODIKLAT TNI-AD), Bandung, Indonesia to establish Combat Simulation Center
(PUSSIMPUR) Bandung, West Java and Combat Training Center (PUSLATPUR) Baturaja,
South Sumatera. Then he was a Research Assistant in the Center for Environmental
Remote Sensing, Chiba University, Japan in 2000. He was with the Center
for Frontier Electronics and Photonics (Venture Business Laboratory), Chiba
University, Japan as a Lecturer - Post Doctoral Fellowship Researcher from
2002 to 2005. Currently, he is an Associate Professor at the Center for
Environmental Remote Sensing, Chiba University from 2005, and as a Visiting Lecturer/Professor in many Universities.
His main interests are theoretically scattering wave analysis and its applications
in microwave (radar) remote sensing, especially synthetic aperture radar
(SAR) and subsurface radar (VLF), analysis and design of antennas for mobile
satellite communications, SAR onboard UAV and small satellite development.
He is a member of the IEEE, IEICE, the Japan Society for Photogrammetry
and Remote Sensing (JSPRS) and Remote Sensing Society Japan (RSSJ). He
is reviewer of IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letter (GRSL), International Journal of Remote Sensing, IET Microwave, Antenna and Propagation (IET MAP) or former IEE MAP, Progress In Electromagnetics Research (PIER) & Journal of Electromagnetic
Waves and Applications (JEMWA), Asian Journal of Geoinformatics, Journal of Environmental Informatics, International Journal of Remote Sensing and Earth science(IJReSES), Journal
Regional Environmental Change (REC) and others. He is also the evaluator/reviewer
of Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), Belgian Earth Observation Programme - Belgian Science Policy Office (BELSPO)
etc. He received many awards and research grants related his researches
and studies, and promoted many students [list] from around the world.
He manages Microwave Remote Sensing Laboratory, Center for Environmental Remote Sensing, Chiba University, Japan. His
laboratory promotes the education and research to develop the internationally
technologies and sciences. He always encourages the undergraduate and postgraduate
students to know the microwave phenomenons and to be familiar with the
interaction between microwave and natural matters (i.e. vegetation, artificial
materials, earth surface, snow), therefore they could develop original
methods or sensor during studying in the courses.
Away from work, he enjoys ethnic foods, travel and cycling.
