Also follow me on:

I'm a trained anthropologist and have extensive experience since 1997 in research on local forest use and management that includes study on local community behavior, values, norms, social structures, social relations and conflict. I also have some experience in community development, where I engaged in non-governmental organization working on advocacy of indigenous peoples’ rights and strengthening of local people’s economy through credit union (1995-2008).

I used participatory research methods such as PRA, RRA, and PAR. These methods have been used in my field activities.

I have been a lecturer at the Faculty of Social and Political Sciences of Mulawarman University since 1990 teaching topics in cultural anthropology, environmental sociology, sociology of religion, critical sociology, postmodernism, kinship, and fundementals of logic. I'm now a researcher at Center for Social Forestry (CSF) of Mulawarman University since 1997. I was away from the university in 1995-1997 to pursue a master’s degree in socio-cultural anthropology at Ateneo de Manila University, Philippines, and 1998-2004 as a research fellow at Institute for Global Environmental Strategies (IGES), Japan.

In 2009 I was invited by the Laboratory of Global Forest Environmental Studies (GFES), Graduate School of Agricultural and Life Siences, The University of Tokyo, Japan, as a visiting research fellow for 12 months. I spent 8 months only because I could not leave my works back in Indonesia longer than that.

My latest assignment is chair of the editorial board of “Socio-Humanities,” the first journal in social sciences and humanities published in English by Mulawarman University Research Institute (MURI).

I have a wide range of interest and my hubs will contain varieties of issues.
