Denny Irawan (27) is a PhD candidate in Economics at Ardnt-Corden Department of Economics (ACDE) and the Centre for Applied Macroeconomic Analysis (CAMA) in Crawford School of Public Policy, The Australian National University (ANU). His PhD research focuses on financial cycles of natural resource companies under the influence of business cycles and commodity price cycles. He examines three financial cycles inside resource companies: (1) investment cycle; (2) leverage cycle; and (3) risk cycle. In a broader context, examining these cycles can reveal the key aspects of business sustainability of resource companies, and provide insights about their longevity.

Prior to his PhD, he had six years of professional economic research and consulting experience at the Institute for Economic and Social Research (LPEM) at Universitas Indonesia, where he was involved mainly in two research groups: (1) Macroeconomics and Financial Sector; and (2) Regional and Energy Resources Policy. He has engaged in more than 40 research and consulting projects.
