I was born in Jakarta, Indonesia and a first generation college graduate. I spent my grade school years in Indonesia and Taiwan; after graduation, I moved back to Indonesia and worked as a Chinese-Mandarin teacher, but I realized that I wasn’t finished with my education. I headed on to Alabama to go to Jefferson State Community College and then transferred to the University of Montevallo for a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics. It was there that my professors encouraged me to attend graduate school. Before finding my academic home here at University of Hawai‘i–West O‘ahu, I went to The University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) for my Master and Ph.D. in Mathematics.

I’m so excited to be working at University of Hawai‘i–West O‘ahu! I love the small classes, students-professors relationships, and all the wonderful people I have met. I love teaching all levels of mathematics, and I particularly enjoy doing so as a member of such a dedicated and supportive environment.
