Career Overview

Prof. Marzuki became a part of the Physics Department at Universitas Andalas as a Lecturer in December 2002. Taking a temporary hiatus for several years, he pursued his master’s and doctoral degrees in Japan and Austria, respectively. In 2011, he embarked on a new chapter in his career by joining the Radar Atmospheric Science Laboratory at Kyoto University as a postdoctoral researcher under the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). Reaffirming his commitment to Universitas Andalas, he resumed his role in June 2013 and subsequently assumed the position of Head of the Physics Department.
