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

Welcome to my academic website! I am an incoming Research Fellow at Asia Culture Research Institute at Asia Culture Center. I recently defended 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.
