I am a native of Indonesia and I have been teaching various courses and disciplines since 2003. I received my Master of Divinity from Harding Theological School in Memphis, TN with emphasis on historical and religious studies. My research interests are in the field of ancient Mediterranean studies focusing on religious diversity and women’s roles. I am currently pursuing my PhD in ancient historical studies.

In 2014, I joined ASU-Beebe as a full time instructor in the Department of Social Sciences. I have been teaching World Civilization to and since 1660, Principles of Academic Success, and Comparative Religion. Prior to teaching on Beebe campus, I taught world history, philosophy, and comparative religion courses on Heber Springs campus as well as various religious courses at Harding University.

I love to challenge my students to think globally and to make a greater impact wherever they might be. I believe in intellectual growth beyond a doubt. However, immersion is the best way to really embrace and love learning. As a result, I have been leading a 3-day field trip to the Dallas area for my Comparative Religion class every Spring semester since 2007 visiting various religious temples. I have recently led an 8-day field trip to El Salvador for my World Civ to 1660 course in the Spring 2017. 

I am highly involved on campus and serve in various committees. I am a visionary whose wheels are always turning, thinking of new projects. Currently, I am working on the Global Conversation Network Project to provide students with global exposures and interactions with students across the globe. Students love to learn from their peers, especially from other countries. In addition to peer-to-peer conversations, students will also be encouraged to participate in dialogues with several group of experts organized by their countries of expertise.

I love being a part of the ASU Beebe family. This institution is an awesome place to work. We have wonderful faculty members, staff, and students. My dream is to inspire all of us to change the status quo by refusing to listen to condescending or pessimistic voices. We cannot change what others think, but we can choose what drives us and realize the power we have within to inspire others to move in a positive direction. Each element of our lives has a synergistic effect on the whole with the ability to produce the community we have dreams of becoming.
