His previous research involves signalling pathway in the neurovascular unit and hemodynamic force, as well as toxicology. During bachelor study in Atma Jaya Catholic University of Indonesia, he was investigating antimicrobial compound from essential oil to combat oral biofilm forming bacteria. He was graduated in 2016 as a Bachelor of Science in Biotechnology.

He is always eager to explore and study more regarding different perspectives and aspects of biomedical field, which requires multidisciplinary approach to tackle health problems. Thus leading him into the COLOTAN project.

His project aims to improve the understanding of drug dissolution, diffusion, and absorption from the human colon with a focus on the role of the colonic mucus layer. The obtained results will be used to design drug delivery decision trees for colonic drug delivery as well as improved in silico models for drug absorption from the colon.
