Myrtati Dyah Artaria

It is a challenge for Myrtati Dyah Artaria to explore anthropology, as it is rarely studied. Her interest in anthropology started when she was in high school. This made Myrta, her nickname, successfully completed her undergraduate study at the Department of Anthropology, Faculty of Social and Political Sciences (FISIP) at Universitas Airlangga. Afterwards, she continued her study to earn master degree at Arizona State University, USA, on Physical Anthropology in 1996. In 2003, she had an opportunity for further studies in a doctoral program in the same field at The University of Adelaide, Australia. Because of her expertise in physical anthropology, she was awarded the “Kartini Award” in the nomination “Perempuan ber-IPTEK dan Berkemampuan Unik” by the Center for Women’s Studies. In 2009, she was awarded “100 Outstanding Women Researchers” by the Ministry of Women’s Empowerment. She received a series of awards not only as practitioners, but also as an academician. In 2009 and 2010, she was awarded twice in a row as the Exemplary Lecturer at Faculty of Social and Political Science, Universitas Airlangga. The awards above were also influenced by several of her studies and writings in the form of scientific journals, books and book chapters, which are widely published.

She collaborated with Prof. HJ Glinka (the Professor of Anthropology and founder of the Department of Anthropology at Faculty of Social and Political Sciences) and her colleague, Dr. Toetik Koesbardiati, in writing a book about physical anthropology. Some of her writings which have been published, among others, are “Morfologi Tubuh Orang Indonesia” (1992), “Metode Pengukuran Manusia” (2008), and “Antropologi Dental“(2009). In 2011, she shared her knowledge of Anthropology in Encyclopedia of Asian-American. She is the Vice Dean III in FISIP, Universitas Airlangga. She has attended trainings on the science of physical anthropology to consolidate her knowledge in facial reconstruction, including “Basic Forensic Facial Reconstruction from the Skull” (1996) and “Advance Forensic Facial Reconstruction from the Skull” (1999). Myrtati was inaugurated as the 450th Professor of Universitas Airlangga on August 27, 2016 where she delivered her scientific oration entitled “Identifikasi Individu Tak Beridentitas di Indonesia”.
