I am a post-doctoral researcher at Bosch Center for Artificial Intelligence (BCAI) and Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), working with Prof. Zico Kolter. My current research areas focus on extending the capability of machine learning and deep learning techniques to incorporate domain-specific requirements on the predictions. This includes the requirements of optimizing custom performance metrics, matching physical constraints of the models, ensuring fairness on the predictions, and many other requirements. Besides conducting theoretical works, I am also involved in applied machine learning projects over a range of applications inside the BCAI and CMU. For more details, please check my resume.

I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Computer Science, University of Illinois at Chicago. I was fortunate to have Prof. Brian Ziebart as my advisor. I was grateful to also collaborate with Prof. Xinhua Zhang.

I was born and raised in a small village in Java island, Indonesia. After high school, I moved to Jakarta to complete my bachelor degree at the Institute of Statistics. I was also very lucky to be awarded Fulbright scholarship in 2012. Being a Fulbright grantee was a milestone to pursue my passion in machine learning and artificial intelligence.

I am fond of nature. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking in national parks and local forests with my family.
