I obtained my Bachelor's degree in Forestry from the Institute of Agriculture Stiper Yogyakarta (Indonesia) in 2004, and my MSc degree in Regional Development and Environmental management from the Mahasaraswati University Denpasar (Indonesia) in 2012. I have worked as a researcher at the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) in Bali Botanical Garden since 2010. My research at the Bali Botanical Garden focuses on the ecology and taxonomy of tropical plants, especially those from the highlands of eastern Indonesia. Alongside my colleagues, I have discovered and described several new species from the family Begoniaceae.

At present, I am a student of the Doctoral program in ecology at Guangxi University. I am broadly interested in endangered plant species and their ecology. Bali, and Indonesia in general, is undergoing extensive deforestation and land use changes. Two of the most resilient features of the country's landscape are the temples and sacred groves. However despite their importance, sacred groves have not been extensively studied in Indonesia. For this reason, I plan to examine the genetic structure, genetic diversity and conservation value of Dipterocarpus hasseltii, a canopy tree, within sacred groves of varying sizes in Bali, Indonesia.

Conservation of nature and natural resources have been important parts of cultural ethos worldwide, especially in remote rural and indigenous communities. I aim to investigate how sacred groves play an important role in biodiversity conservation.
