International Relations, Public Administration and Policy


I am interested in the International Political Economy subfield especially on International Trade issues. In specific, I am interested on the interlink between international trade and development.


I am from Indonesia and currently a Fulbright Presidential PhD Scholar.

I serve as a government official in the Ministry of Trade of the Republic of Indonesia since 2006, and currently on study leave. I dealt with issues of trade negotiations especially under the WTO.

Prior working as a government, I earned my bachelor degree in Economics of Development from Padjajaran University, Indonesia, and in Mining Engineering from Bandung Institute of Technology, Indonesia. During my study in Padjajaran University, I also serve as teaching assistant.

In 2008, I receive an MA in Economics of Development from Institute of Social Studies, Erasmus University at The Hague, Netherlands under the StuNed (Studeren in Nederland) scholarship.
