About Me

Hi! I am an assistant professor in Information Technology at Universitas Gadjah Mada.

My research mainly revolves around cyber-physical systems and applications of machine learning algorithms. Recently I have been exploring blockchain related applications in securing the internet of things and distributed systems in general.

Previously, I obtained my PhD from the University of New South Wales, where I received the Dean’s Award for Outstanding PhD Theses, under the joint supervision of Prof Salil Kanhere, Prof Raja Jurdak, and Dr Volkan Dedeoglu. I received my master’s degree in Computing Science from the University of Groningen in 2017 and bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Universitas Gadjah Mada in 2014.

We host our research as open-source projects on our GitHub organization. Please have a look!
