Research interests


My research interests are divided into two broad areas: (i) Quality of life of marginalized groups (poor, women, minority religion, etc) and (ii) Family and couple relationships, problems, and intervention. As a PhD student, I work on two different-but-related study: Indonesian valuation of EQ-5D-5L and Quality of life of people living in the riverbank of Ciliwung river, Jakarta, Indonesia.
