I am a PhD Candidate at the School of Political Science and International Studies. Previously, I was a Researcher and, prior to commencing my PhD, becoming the Executive Secretary of ASEAN Studies Center, Gadjah Mada University, Indonesia (2014-2017) as well as a Research Assistant at the Institute of International Studies, Universitas Gadjah Mada, Yogyakarta (2013-2014).
My Doctoral research focuses to understand the Rise of Asia and the Transformation of International Order from historical perspective. In addition, I am also currently involved in a collaborative research project on Disaster Displacement in Asia Pacific with the Raoul Wallenberg Institute, Lund University, Sweden (since 2017). This project will take a closer look on how Asian and Pacific states respond to disaster and the displacement of people who are affected by the disaster. By taking a broad human rights-based approach, I shall focus on the case of post-Eruption displacement in Mount Agung, Bali. Besides involving as a Research Fellow at the Earth System Governance, I am also a member of International Studies Association, Australian Political Studies Association, and the International Political Studies Association. I am also a member of Muhammadiyah, the largest Islamic Modernist organisation in Southeast Asia. My works appear in several journals and non-academic publications, such as Studia Islamika, Asian Review, Journal of Asian Security and International Affairs, Indonesian Strategic Review, The Conversation, and The Jakarta Post.
I obtained my BA in International Relations from Gadjah Mada University, Indonesia (2013) and MSc in Politics with Research Methods at the University of Sheffield (2016).
