I am the co-founder of WISE – WASH in Southeast Asia, an NGO that enables communities, based on their needs, to acquire the capacity to improve their water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) practices. WISE focuses on community development, capacity building and behaviour change in Indonesia and Cambodia.
My journey in the WASH sector started in 2006 when I joined Engineers Without Borders UK. Since then, I have worked with Lien AID Limited, the Lien Foundation – Nanyang Technological University Environmental Endeavour (now NEWRICOMM), ASEAN Youth Volunteer Program, and Shelter Centre, and consulted with Plan International Indonesia and Water.org.
I am currently working with Engineering Good (formerly Engineers Without Borders Asia) on finance and impact and supporting Singapore Red Cross to develop their emergency WASH capacity.
I graduated with a PhD (cum laude) in emergency sanitation from Institut Teknologi Bandung and an MEng in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Imperial College London.
