My research with WildCRU lies in the interdisciplinary stream of conservation science, combining humanities, social science, and natural science in the context of elephants’ coexistence with different communities in Sumatra, Indonesia. I specialise in biocultural and human-heritage biodiversity conservation to achieve social justice. I received a full scholarship from Jardine Foundation to study at Oxford.
I received my Master of Science in Forestry at Michigan State University, United States, sponsored by the Fulbright Scholarship. Prior to my DPhil program, I work for over five years at the Center for International Forestry Research (CIFOR) in Bogor, Indonesia. My previous research focus covered wetland restoration, community livelihoods and forestry conflict.
