About Me

About Asri Wijayanti

Hello and welcome to my page!

I am Asri, an Indonesian woman who, due to her interest and passion, has been establishing a career in the fields of communication in the last twelve years. In 2006 I shifted my career from broadcast media to disaster risk reduction (DRR) and disaster management public awareness and communication. To date, I have worked for DRR projects of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Indonesia and Myanmar, and for the ASEAN Coordinating Centre for Humanitarian Assistance on disaster management (AHA Centre).


I pursued a Diploma in English with a specialization in English for Public Relations and a Bachelor Degree in English Linguistic Studies in Diponegoro University, Semarang, Indonesia. For my Master's Degree, I was granted with Fulbright Scholarship from the US Department of States to Intercultural/Interpersonal Communication in the State University of New York (SUNY) in Albany, New York, USA. For my Master's thesis, I conducted a research on communication challenges between various DRR stakeholders in Aceh, Indonesia.


I am also passionate about understanding cultural and social phenomenons, as much as I am curious about the wonders of the universe. Hence, I love to learn, read, and travel.


Here you will find a recollection of my thoughts, views, and opinions based on my knowledge and experiences, mostly in the topics of disaster management, culture, and communication. Here I also share some publications covering stories or lessons learned from my previous projects, as well as publications in which I have been involved as the author, co-editor, or as the resource person. I would also love to invite you to the places I have traveled, through my stories and photographs.


The followings are the list of the sections in my website:
