Dhanan Utomo

PhD student


I am a PhD student in Management Science Department, Lancaster University Management School. My specialization is in computer modelling and simulation. Previously, I worked in various organisations including as a lecturer in Institut Teknologi Bandung, and as an expert in Indonesian Presidential Office. I took part in many research funded by various international bodies such as The British Council, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) and Asian Office of Aerospace Research and Development (AOARD). I also did several consultation projects including for PT Pertamina EP (Oil company), Indonesian Bank (central bank), Indonesian ministry of agriculture and PT TELKOM (Telecommunication company). I received my Masters’ degree in Management Science from Institut Teknologi Bandung (Indonesia), submitting a dissertation on the application of Agent-based simulation for school choice policy. Now I am developing data collection methodologies for agent-based computer simulation. During my PhD, I also undertake teaching role and become a mentor in Math and Stats Help Center.
