Adjunct Professor, Griffith Asia Institute, Griffith University

I have worked at a number of universities in Australia and Indonesia since 1974. I took up my current position at Parahyangan University in 2009, and at the Griffith Asia Institute the following year. My primary fields of teaching and research expertise are in the modern history, politics and economics of Indonesia, and Australia-Indonesia relations.

I am currently based at the Parahyangan University in Bandung.
