Hi, I'm David πŸ‘‹ I work as a software engineer and have a background in economics and policy. Outside of work, I pursue passion projects.

πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» I work as a software engineer at Bukalapak based in their Melbourne office. Bukalapak is an Indonesian unicorn ecommerce company with the mission β€œto create a fair economy for all,” and I’m excited to be part of the journey to achieve this.

πŸ“Š Before entering tech, I worked as a strategy analyst at Accenture Strategy – Economic Insights. The Economic Insights team brings together strategy, economics and data science to help public and private sector organisations solve policy and market problems. Prior to that, I worked as a copyeditor for the economics and foreign affairs publication East Asia Forum, an initiative based out of the Crawford School of Public Policy.

πŸ“š I studied economics and mathematics at the Australian National University, with the top grade in my economics honours cohort. I also studied one year of Chinese at the IUP Chinese Center at Tsinghua University, an advanced language program associated with a consortium of North American universities.

✨ Outside of work, you can find me coding and writing in pursuit of passion projects and sharing what I learn along the way.
