I received my PhD in Economics and Political Science from Claremont Graduate University. Prior to that, I obtained an MA in international relations from Johns Hopkins University and a BA in economics from University of Indonesia. I was also an economist at the Centre for Strategic and International Studies in Jakarta.
My areas of research and teaching are macroeconomics, international money and finance, and international political economy. My dissertation looked at the role of excessive credit growth and financial regulation and supervision as contributors to financial crises. My current research explores economic and political explanations behind a country’s vulnerability to financial crises. My work has been published or is forthcoming in ASEAN Economic Bulletin, International Interactions, European Law Journal, Journal of Financial Economic Policy, and The Indonesian Quarterly.
