My opinions in this blog is at the intersection between public policy, law, politics and other social occurrences in Indonesia and other global current affairs. I currently work for the government. My portfolio includes infrastructure, urban transportation, food security and gender issues. My other topics of interest would be on democracy, political Islam and climate change policies.

I graduated from Faculty of Law, University of Indonesia in 2008 and from the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore in 2012. I’ve done mostly research work starting from Center for Electoral Reform (CETRO) and Indonesian Center for Environmental Law (ICEL). I also worked on REDD+ for Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), and had a brief internship for the Project Finance practice group in Hadiputranto, Hadinoto and Partners, a law firm in Jakarta. If you want to know more, see my LinkedIn profile.

My articles here do not reflect the position of any of my employers as they are my own personal opinions.

In my spare time, I like to travel and do photography.
