I am a full Professor of Forest Policy and Governance at the Faculty of Forestry, Universitas Gadjah Mada. I work on forest policy and governance, community forestry policy, forest tenure and land use policy with specific interest in policy processes (actors, interests, and power), policy instruments and international forest regimes.
PhD in Forest Policy Development from Göttingen University, Germany.
MFor Forest Policy and Governance, The Australian National University (Australia)
BSc Forest Management, Universitas Gadjah Mada (ID).
My research interests include forest policy and governance, community forestry policy, forest certification and legality verification, and forest tenure. I am currently working on environmental justice in the context of European Union Timber Regulations and FLEGT with the University of East Anglia.
I use my extensive consulting experience, especially on forest policy and policy networks in Indonesia, having conducted assessments and reviews concerning community forestry, timber legality, and forest governance.
Current and recent projects
My recent publications focus on timber legality and community forestry. I am especially interested in how national trade policies, influenced by global actors, affect different actors within the Indonesian production and policy networks.
