Mohammad Meidiansyah

Mohammad is from Aceh, Indonesia. He received his undergraduate degree in Geography, specializing in Spatial Development and Planning, from Gadjah Mada University, Indonesia. There he learned methods appropriate for sustainable development in Indonesia. As a MURP student, Mohammad was interested in learning how to combine Transportation Planning with Geographic Information Systems (GIS) as a tool. He views the City of Portland as having one of the best convenient public transportation systems in the U.S. 

Mohammad most recently worked as a Civil Servant in Aceh, giving recommendations for transportation infrastructure plans. The construction of transportation infrastructure in Aceh after the devastating Indian Ocean tsunami of December 26, 2004, took place very quickly, resulting in problems of inappropriate land use. Therefore, for sustainable transportation development in Aceh, re-inventory of geospatial-based transportation infrastructure assets and accurate arrangement of planning documents is required. Mohammad would like to apply his planning knowledge to benefit others. He is also interested in creating an international network by helping to establish a U.S. Sister City for Aceh.
