Astronomer. Astronomy Communicator by day. New Media practitioners. Storyteller and podcaster in the making. Social media observer. Web developer and Web administrator by accident.
I’m involved extensively with astronomy communication with the public, enjoying the challenge of conveying complex ideas in an easy-to-understand manner.
I currently serve as IAU Office for Astronomy Outreach National Coordinator for Indonesia.

What I Do
Silver Communicator Award2018
Mathematics & Natural Science ITB Alumnae Award for Social Contribution2105
Silver Communicator Award2015
2004 - 2007Astronomy Department, Institut Teknologi Bandung
Master of Science in Astrophysics
Thesis : Planetary System Modeling : Study Case Solar System and 47 Ursae Majoris
Planetary system modeling using planetary system generator, which is built based on a simple accretion model (Dole 1970) and considering the present structure of the solar system.
Data on newly discovered extrasolar planets are also taken into account. It is then applied to generate 47 Ursae Majoris system to analyze its evolution. The planetary system generator in this project is a modification to ACRETE simulation by implementing perturbation and tidal effect of the system.
1997 - 2003Astronomy Department, Institut Teknologi Bandung
Bachelor of Science in Astronomy
Research: Extrasolar Planet : 47 Ursae Majoris System, Perturbation Effect & its Evolution
The project aims to analyze 47 Ursae Majoris system stabilization using Weak Friction-Perturbation Model (WFPM). This is a numerical model based on the perturbation and the tidal effect. We analyze the orbital element changes and compare it with the Sun-Jupiter-Saturn system to analyze the system evolution compared to the Solar System.
