I am a PhD student at the School of Computing and Information Systems, University of Melbourne. I belong to the Natural Language Processing Group, under the supervision of Trevor Cohn and Lea Frermann.

Before my PhD, I was a research scientist at, a conversational AI startup in Jakarta. I worked on tasks such as NER, POS tagging, and summarisation for Indonesian. Shortly before that, I got my master’s degree in artificial intelligence from the University of Edinburgh. I did my master’s thesis on neural constituency parsing under the supervision of Frank Keller. I got my bachelor’s degree in computer science from Universitas Indonesia.
