Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS)



Originally born in Indonesia, I have spent the last 8 years in Netherlands. During this time, I obtained Master’s degrees in International Economics (with development economics minor) and Accounting and Finance (specialising in financial accounting and analysis). I have over three years work experience in the private sector, working for MNCs and managing SMEs. Additionally, I have over five years experience as teaching assistant and bachelor thesis coaching at the university level.

My research interest, in broad terms, involves the intersection of economics, technology, legislation and social welfare through the lens of behavioural economics and law. I am also interested in theoretical modelling in economics, specifically involving competition policy and international trade.

In my spare time, I like to watch unhealthy amount of films and tv series, read fiction, and play badminton and squash.


My research interest revolves around 3 main streams of work: how technology and human behaviour impact the issues of mis(dis) information and the subsequent impact on policy, legislation and societal level decision making, how current technology can exacerbate economic inequality in the absence of proper governance policies and the feasibility of the idea of universal basic income in face of increasing automation and income inequality, and how best to use technology and behavioural science to increase educational attainment among specific sub-populations (ethnic minorities, ex-prisoners, etc.) in order to promote better outcomes in the sub-population.
