Research Associate

Aulia Salsabella Suwarno joined ERIA in January 2023 as a Research Associate in the Research Knowledge Centre for Marine Plastic Debris in ASEAN+3 countries.

She holds a Bachelor of Science in Oceanography from Institut Teknologi Bandung. Her passion for environmental conservation drove her to co-establish a youth environmental organisation called Pratisara Bumi, which aimed to promote awareness among Indonesian youths through social media.  Her educational video about marine plastic debris won first place in the #Indonesia4Climate competition held by FPCI.

Before joining ERIA, she worked as a Data Analyst for the Minister’s Delivery Unit of the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries Indonesia, where she was involved in the formulation of the ministry’s Blue Economy Roadmap for 2045.
