I have been working primarily in Indonesia. I
carried out several field expeditions in Kalimantan and Java as well
conducted desktop studies which resulted in several publications on
biodiversity inventory and assessment.
I have been awarded two full scholarships by Australian Awards for pursuing Master and Doctoral degree at the University of Queensland. During my PhD, I was also awarded with Top-up Scholarship by Australian Research Council-Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions (ARC-CEED) and UQ Travel Award. My PhD was jointly supervised by Professor Kerrie Wilson, Professor Hugh Possingham, Dr. Peter Erskine and Dr. Erik Meijaard.
I have more
than ten years research experiences in the field of conservation biology and
restoration ecology in Indonesia. I have been trained as a forester and a
spatial ecologist. I developed multidisciplinary approach to systematically
prioritize areas for restoration in Kalimantan by combining ecological and
economic models. I expand my work by incorporating social perspectives into
restoration prioritization analysis, employing social-ecological systems
framework. My research and opinion have been
published in scientific journals as well as featured in popular media
(Kompas, Media Indonesia, Jakarta Post). I am a Young Fellow for IPBES (Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services) for the Thematic Assessment on Land Degradation and Restoration.
