Heru Handika


I am Heru Handika, a PhD candidate at Esselstyn's Lab, Louisiana State University, USA. My academic interests lie at the crossroads of unraveling the intricate mechanisms that drive evolution within complex island systems and harnessing the power of digital tools, such as mobile technology, to foster efficiency, integration, and inclusivity in field-based evolutionary studies.

I conduct collaborative fieldwork in remote mountains on islands in Southeast Asia. In addition to my field research, I take a language-agnostic approach to developing computer programs, embracing the opportunity to learn and adapt to new programming languages as needed.
