Rice fields in Ujungloe, Bulukumba, South Sulawesi (personal collection)

Welcome to my academic website! I am a Research Fellow at the Asia Culture Research Institute at the Asia Culture Center. I recently earned my PhD in Political Science and Southeast Asian Studies at Northern Illinois University. I study elites, social movements, development, and everyday politicsĀ in the context of changing state-society relations. Please find further information about my research, teaching, and public engagement on this site.
