Rizqy Amelia Zein is an assistant professor of social psychology, working at Faculty of Psychology, Universitas Airlangga in Surabaya, Indonesia. I’m also a researcher-in-training at IGDORE, a volunteer at INArxiv - a OSF-hosted pre-print server in Indonesia, and a member of Indonesia Open Science Team. Just recently, my ECR friends and I decided to start Airlangga #OpenScience, which mainly focuses on promoting open scientific practices in Universitas Airlangga (and beyond). I’m also a researcher-in-training at Institute for Globally Distributed Open Research and Education (IGDORE) and a tutor in Wawasan Terbimbing Sains Terbuka Indonesia (WIBISANA) – the first Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) of open science adoption in Indonesia.

Apart from my daily responsibilities, I’m determined to practise my programming skill and created this website using

I was born in Lombok, a beautiful island next to Bali, but spent most of my childhood in Surabaya, Indonesia. Apart from my academic life, I enjoy cooking for my husband Ilham and my 3.5 year old daughter, Ayesha.
