About Me

I am an embassy-recommended Monbukagakusho scholar currently taking doctoral course at the Graduate School of International Cooperation Studies, Kobe University, Japan. Previously, I took the master's course in the same place.  
Prior to joining GSICS, I was a research intern as well as a research assistant at ASEAN Studies Center Universitas Gadjah Mada, one of the leading ASEAN Studies Centers in Indonesia. 
I got my bachelor of political science from International Program of International Relations (IPIREL), Universitas Muhammadiyah Yogyakarta in 2018. I finished my bachelor's entirely in English. 

My current research interest is International Relations and Security in Asia-Pacific, in particular about Japan's security policies and cooperation in Southeast Asia. At the moment, I am developing research on the impact of Japan's Abe Doctrine on Southeast Asia.
