Prior to joining Sheffield Hallam University in 2011, I gained my undergraduate degree in Mass Communication from Gadjah Mada University, Indonesia, and my postgraduate Master's degree in Communication from Florida State University, USA.
Audience study has been my focal interest for quite some time, and forms the basis of my PhD study.
Discussions with my supervisors have been a satisfying intellectual experience, which have enriched and challenged me to tackle harder questions, and inspired me to pursue further research in the intersection between the field of audience participation and crisis communication.
