Goes by Haekal for short, developed his interest for engineering as early as 7th grade. His interest towards helicopter-view problem solving brought him to Industrial Engineering Department, Universitas Indonesia, where he found 'formal geekery' in form of 'Industrial-Engineering-fu'.
Haekal has found his path towards indutrial engineering diversed and multi-disciplined, yet he fell in love with Product Development and Innovation. His personal cores include computer aided manufacturing, digital product development, and OPSEC.
His undergraduate thesis project concerns with the low resilience in taking large-scale order in SMEs and how to solve this problem with knowledge management system approach.
