About the Map-maker:

Hello! My name is Nal Xaviera and I am finishing up my second year in Civil and Environmental Engineering (strong emphasis on the civil side). I am Indonesian so whenever I have the opportunity to do my own research at Princeton, I make it about Indonesia. In my free time, I like drawing (albeit not with much skill) and reading novels (which I can do quite well!).
