About

I focus on Indonesia’s contemporary history, particularly carceral confinement. I earned my master’s degree in Criminology from Universitas Indonesia, Jakarta. I also hold an LLM from Kyushu University, Japan, and a Master 2 in Asie Méridionale et Orientale from École des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS), Paris. Before coming to France in 2013, I worked at the Centre for Criminological Studies in Indonesia and taught Criminology as a guest lecturer at Universitas Indonesia. I am currently a Ph.D. student at the EHESS Paris under the joint supervision of Nathalie Clayer (CETOBaC) and Rémy Madinier (IAO). I am currently interested in religious institutions’ role in the Indonesian carceral system, particularly the Catholic Church. My work questions the ambiguity of the church’s relations with the State by developing its social actions within the carceral system.
