I am a PhD candidate at the University of Amsterdam and a researcher at the Amsterdam Institute for Global Health and Development (AIGHD). In my current research I study the impacts of education policy reforms on learning outcomes in Indonesia, as part of the Research on Improving Systems of Education (RISE) program.

Previously, I also worked on impact evaluations of interventions in early child development, food security and water and sanitation in Asia and Africa.
