Qualifications:

Master of Applied Anthropology and Participatory Development, Australian National University (ANU)
Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Asian Studies (Indonesian, H1), ANU

Experience:

Prior to commencing my PhD I worked as an anthropologist in the Northern Territory documenting sites of cultural significance (sacred sites) to Aboriginal people (2009-2015). I continue this role as a consultant. Previously I worked as a policy officer at the Department of Employment, Education and Workplace Relations (2009) and a curator at the National Museum of Australia (2006-2008).

Research Interests:

I am undertaking an anthropological study at the household level of current tastes and trends in meat consumption in Indonesia and Australia. I will contrast and compare findings with consideration of future trends relevant to food security. Research will be disseminated through the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) and the University of Queensland. The research aims to further academic and policy cooperation between Australia and Indonesia.
