I am a lecturer at the Department of Economics of Universitas Indonesia as well as a research associate at the Institute for Economic and Social Research (LPEM-FEUI) also at Universitas Indonesia. Previously studied at the Faculty of Economics at the University of Indonesia and the University of London, I am currently pursuing doctoral degree in economics at George Mason University.
As an Indonesian Research Fellow at Harvard Kennedy School from the Spring 2011 to Spring 2012 semesters, I will conduct research on the credit market, the 1998 Indonesian banking crisis and the country’s bailout policy. I will look at bank lending behavior at the firm level, exploiting panel data on firms and banks before and after the crisis, as well as determinant of credit lending from the bank’s perspective. I will also try to capture the political economy attributes, such as political connectedness and credit access, into the analysis.
I have extensive research experience especially in political economy, macroeconomics, and trade. I also have conducted field researches and large-survey analysis in Indonesia, with substantial experience in working with international agencies. I taught intermediate micro and macroeconomics for undergraduate.
