About Me

I am an Assistant Teaching Professor at Rutgers University, New Jersey. Prior to this, I have taught various undergraduate geological courses since 2016 as a Teaching Assistant at the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Rutgers. In January 2022, I earned my doctorate degree in structural geology from Rutgers University. My current research focuses on salt tectonics, extensional tectonics, and rift basin development.

Prior to the start of my Ph.D., I worked as a geologist with ExxonMobil Indonesia for 5 years on both exploration and development projects. Throughout my professional career, I obtained numerous skills related to geology and petroleum industry including interpretation of 2D/3D seismic-reflection data, geophysics, geologic operations, sequence stratigraphy, and development of carbonate oil reservoir.
