I’m currently based in Singapore as a Research Associate at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies (ISEAS). As a researcher and a practicing designer-developer, I am interested in the histories and intersections of information, (digital) technology, design, and society.
I was born in Surabaya, Indonesia, where in 2008 I founded C2O library & collabtive, an independent library and coworking community space. I hold a Master in Cultural Studies from Airlangga University, with a thesis on alternative libraries, which was awarded 2013 Graduate Research Fellowship from the Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore.
Some of my works have been presented/published in Networked Researcher Open Access (City University of London, 2012), Cornell University Southeast Asia Bulletin (2014), SOJOURN (2015, 2016), Oxford University (2016), University of Technology Sydney’s PORTAL Journal of Multidisciplinary International Studies (2016), Journal of Southeast Asian Economies (2016), Free & Open Source Software Asia Summit (FOSSASIA 2017), and the Australian National University’s annual Indonesia Update on Digital Indonesia (2017).
