I am a lecturer in the Geology Study Program, Geoscience Department, Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, Universitas Indonesia (UI). I have been teaching at Universitas Indonesia since 2017.

Before becoming a lecturer, I was an exploration geologist in ENJ, an exploration subsidiary of Freeport-McMoran (FCX) in Indonesia. Later I was employed as a technical geologist in Micromine Indonesia, a company that develops geological and mining software. The first job is a full-action field geologist, while the latter is what some people refer to as the ‘clicking geologist’. Both were important experiences for me because they really helped me illustrate to the students what kind of work they will face as geologists. Both experiences are also crucial to ensuring that my teaching and research are relevant to what the industry needs.

I like many aspects of geology, but I prefer to identify myself as a structural geologist or exploration geologist with a bit of knowledge here and there. After completing my master’s degree I have a big interest in applying machine learning for geological study.


  • Master of Mineral Resources, Exploration Geology from The University of Queensland (supported by Australia Awards Scholarship)
