I currently work as a senior assistant professor in the Criminal Law Department at the Faculty of Law, University of Surabaya. I served as the Head of the department from 2019 to 2022.

I earned my master's degree in 2011 from the Master of Law Programme at the Faculty of Law, University of Airlangga, having achieved first-class honours and ranking at the top of my class. From 2018 to 2022, I served as the Managing Editor of Jurnal Yustika: Media Hukum dan Keadilan Law Journal, and I am currently a member of its Editorial Board. In addition to this, I served as a consultant at the Law Service and Legal Aid Bureau within the faculty.

Presently, I am pursuing my research as a full-time postgraduate researcher at The Centre for Criminal Justice Studies, School of Law, University of Leeds. I am honored to be supported by a full scholarship from BPPT-LPDP, the Republic of Indonesia.

Research interests

My research revolves around cybercrime and law enforcement, and I have conducted several studies on technology-aided crime deterrence, including the distribution of hoaxes, cyber hate, and computer-mediated fraud. Currently, I am seeking to expand my research on the framework for electronic evidence in the evidentiary process of cybercrime cases, as well as the judge's conviction in the inquisitorial system.

I have undertaken several projects, including the development of a Cyber-hate Prevention System for Twitter, utilising the K-Nearest Neighbour method for effective detection. Another key project was assessing the role of telecommunication service providers in the prevention and resolution of online transaction fraud in Surabaya. This initiative required collaborative efforts with the Association of Telecommunication Business Professionals (ATSI) and the Ministry of Communication and Informatics. Additionally, I played a role in implementing an Integration-oriented System in corporations to combat bribery and corruption, a project funded by the Republic of Indonesia's Ministry of Research, Technology, and Higher Education. Lastly, I contributed to both academic discourse and practical recommendations on addressing online transaction fraud in Surabaya, working in partnership with the East Java Provincial Police.
