How Adlai is building a better working world

“I count myself fortunate to have experienced two deeply meaningful chapters in my career, each leaving a profound mark on the world and touching the lives of others.

In the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami, I've had the privilege of contributing to the reconstruction efforts in communities across Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Thailand. Over three years, I worked closely with donors and NGOs, ensuring efficient allocation of resources to maximize aid impact. Additionally, I played a role in designing and overseeing the first commemoration program for the Republic of Indonesia.

Secondly, I had the opportunity to be part of designing and constructing the essential digital infrastructure required to advance personalized therapies. These groundbreaking treatments hold the potential to one day cure cancer and rare diseases, offering hope to millions around the globe.”
