Previous research

I earned my master’s degree from Kyoto University Graduate School of Asian and African Studies in 2020. My thesis focused on the network of Islamic elites and its role in the recent rise of political Islam in Indonesia, and I conducted fieldwork in Banten province and East Java province in 2018 and 2019, respectively. I have published my findings in the Journal of Indonesian Islam and presented them at the International Convention of Asia Scholars 11 in Leiden, the Netherlands in 2019.

Current research projects

I have obtained a grant from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) for the period of 2021–2022, to conduct research on the increasing polarization of the Muslim community in Indonesia, especially since the 2019 general election and in the anticipation of the 2024 general election.
