Indra Budi Prasetyawan received his bachelor degree in Oceanography from Institut Teknologi Bandung (Bandung Institute of Technology), Indonesia in 2003. He completed his master’s degree in the same institution, Institut Teknologi Bandung in Ocean Engineering in 2009. In 2015, he completed his postgraduate certificate in Ocean Mapping at the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping/Joint Hydrographic Center (CCOM/JHC), University of New Hampshire (UNH), United States, as a Year 11 General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans (GEBCO)/Nippon Foundation scholar.

Indra currently works as a Lecturer in the Oceanography program at Universitas Diponegoro (Diponegoro University) in Semarang, Indonesia. Since beginning as a lecturer in 2004, he has taught a wide range of oceanography courses. As a part of some courses, he also leads field studies in which students can practice methods used to collect oceanographic data. In addition to giving lectures, he also conducts research of Indonesian waters through his involvement in various research projects as a physical oceanographer. While his concentration had previously been on ocean modeling, his studies for the postgraduate certificate in Ocean Mapping at CCOM/JHC, UNH introduced him to the field of ocean mapping, in which he would like to continue.

Indra is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Oceanography at UNH as an advisee of Professor John Hughes Clarke. He is interested in multibeam water column imaging as applied in physical oceanography, specifically in investigating the generation and evolution of internal waves and their contribution to vertical mixing.
