About me

Power engineer by profession, I have been working in power-related industries (distribution, transmission and generation) for more than 13 years in Indonesia and Malaysia, namely in resorts, construction, coal mining and manufacturing fields.

I obtained my master's degree in power engineering from the University of Sydney, Australia and bachelor's degree in power systems engineering from Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS, Malaysia.

I am a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Power and Energy Society and member of the Institution of Engineers Australia.

I have published technical papers about power quality monitoring, power transmission development and power engineering education in IEEE conferences in Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan respectively. I am a regular reviewer for IEEE conference papers submission and have participated in some of IEEE standards development work groups. I have been featured twice in the IEEE Spectrum periodical.

I am a regular external examiner for bachelor's degree final year projects of my alma mater university. I have mentored and guided students from various countries for their engineering projects works.

I am also a cosplayer. I have dressed up in more than 30 cosplay characters from the 80s and 90s movies or gothic. I've been invited as guest cosplayer, speaker, performer and cosplay competition judge in Malaysia and Indonesia. I've won several competition, learned stage performance, make up, hair styling, dress selection and matching, simple suit/dress modification, basic props making, video shooting/editing and maintaining social media presence.

My work

I founded the Wikimedia Community User Group Malaysia in 2016 and has been the president since then. In 2022, I was appointed as the ESEAP Hub Interim Committee and subsequently elected as the committee member for ESEAP Preparatory Council in 2023.

Together with my user group team, I have organized or co-organized a total of 33 Wikipedia meetups, which are in Malaysia (29 meetups) and outside Malaysia (2 in Indonesia, 1 in Singapore and 1 in Taiwan) with various institutions. Some of the meetups were part of conferences and seminar invitation for me to talk about Wikipedia and free knowledge movement in Malaysia.

I started to edit Wikimedia projects since 2009. Since then, I have made more than 2,300 new articles in English-language Wikipedia, uploaded more than 2,500 photos to Wikimedia Commons and made more than 600 page entries in English-language Wikiquote. Overall, I have made more than 540,000 edits throughout the entire Wikimedia projects, with the majority being in the English-language Wikipedia with more than 310,000 edits.

I presented and published a technical paper in IEEE conference in Japan in 2017 about power engineering education with Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons.

I represented Wikimedia Community User Group Malaysia for the Wikimedia Conference 2017 in Germany, ESEAP Strategy Summit 2019 in Thailand, EduWiki Conference 2023 in Serbia, Wikimania 2023 in Singapore and WikidataCon 2023 in Taiwan (upcoming).
