I am at the final stage of my PhD research at Monash University, Australia. I am working under the supervision of Dr. Alice Gaby, Dr. Howard Manns, and Dr. Simon Musgrave. My PhD thesis investigates metaphors of happiness near-synonyms in Indonesian, combining Frame Semantics, MetaNet approach to Metaphors and quantitative corpus linguistics. My research interests include Cognitive Linguistics, Construction Grammar, and Corpus Linguistics. I use R for texts processing, data visualisation, statistical analyses, and rendering reports.
