My name is Karina Aprilia Sujatmiko. People usually call me by my nickname, Alin. I am from Indonesia and my hometown is in Bandung. I am working as lecturer at Oceanography Research Group, Faculty of Earth Science and Technology in Bandung Institute Technology (https://www.itb.ac.id/staff/view/karina-aprilia-sujatmiko-wtys) . Currently, I live in Japan to take a doctoral degree (Phd) at Faculty of Societal Safety Sciences in Kansai University-Takatsuki Muse Campus.
I met my supervisor, Yoshihiro Okumura-sensei, in 2018. When we were collaborated to conduct the field survey after Tsunami Palu. We also published a paper about this survey (https://www.fujipress.jp/jdr/dr/dsstr0013sc20181204/). There are still many interesting and important things that need to be learned about multi-hazard disaster in Palu. That is one of the reasons why I study at Faculty of Societal Safety Sciences and choose research topic about multi-hazard disaster mitigation and prevention. I hope during my doctoral degree not only I learn about safety sciences but also create many new friendship and experience Japanese culture.
