I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics Universitas Gadjah Mada. I earned my PhD in economics from the University of Pittsburgh.

My research interests are experimental economics and economics of education. My current projects investigate the effects of a deposit insurance scheme on moral hazard behaviors among banks, the effects of religious message on choice of Islamic financing (NYUAD research grant), the relationship between school resources and labor market earnings, the impact of the Dell Scholarship Program on various college outcomes (blog post,InsideHigherEd,TheConversation), and household’s preferences regarding the fuel subsidy elimination in Indonesia(link 1link 2link 3link 4link 5).

In this blog, I write about some of my studies, some established studies, and cool initiatives around the world. The topics that I cover include, but not limited to, the economics of education and experimental methods.
