I am an enthusiast and young professional in development evaluation who is now exploring global career opportunities to contribute more and make a real difference for the world through different kinds of evaluation tasks. I have been working in the development evaluation arena for more than 18 years with many bilateral/multilateral organizations with 41 large, complex, and strategic programs/projects with various positions from leadership, managerial, to a technical specialist in both long and short-term engagement in Indonesia. I hold B.

With evaluation professional experiences, academic credentials, and organization leadership above, I am capable to conduct monitoring, tracking, and supervision; process, and impact evaluation using formative and summative approaches from the qualitative lens. I am skillful to manage, conducting, using, and ensuring the enabling environment of a program or policy evaluation for large/national scale and complex programs. The skill-set, in particular, includes the capacity to conduct Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) needs assessment, develop program theory/ theory of change as the basis for development planning and problem-solving, as well as to address program complexity with relevant analytical thinking.
