Short Biodata
He was born in Bandung, 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 (BPPT), Jakarta. 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. He was an Associate Professor (permanent) at the Center for Environmental Remote Sensing (CEReS), Chiba University from 2005 to 2013, then Full Professor (permanent) at the same center from 2013 to now. Now he is Head Department of Environmental Remote Sensing and Head Division of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Graduate School of Science and Engineering, Chiba University in FY 2019.

He is member of international and domestic organizations, reviewer of journals, and organizations. He received many awards and research grants related his researches and studies, and promoted many students from around the world.and as a Visiting Lecturer/Professor in many Universities etc.

His main interests are theoretically scattering microwave analysis and its applications in microwave (radar) remote sensing, especially synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and subsurface radar (VLF) including InSAR, DInSAR and PS-InSAR, analysis and design of antennas for mobile satellite communications and microwave sensors, development of microwave sensors including SAR for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), aircraft, and microsatellite.

He manages Josaphat Microwave Remote Sensing Laboratory (JMRSL), Center for Environmental Remote Sensing (CEReS), Chiba University, Japan. His laboratory promotes the education and research to develop the internationally technologies and sciences on microwave remote sensing. 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 night driving (Toyota 86) with his lovely son, Johannes.
