Senior Research Affiliate UQ Centre for Policy Futures, The University of Queensland

Greta’s research expertise aligns with the Centre for Policy Futures' Security, Development and Foreign Policy program with a focus on the nexus between domestic political imperatives and foreign policy decision-making in Indonesia’s relations with major powers. She also examines how Indonesia’s domestic political milieu influences the efficacy of national security policy making. Greta has served in previous national security and international engagement roles for both Federal and State Government. She is experienced in strategic policy formulation, intelligence reporting and assessment, intergovernmental relations and defence diplomacy. Greta has extensive experience working on the bilateral relationship with Indonesia in the defence, education and international development sectors. She contributes regularly to media and think-tank analysis on regional strategic, political and foreign policy issues, and engages with policy communities through submissions, dialogues, conferences and executive educations programs. Greta’s broader research interests include Indonesian civil-military relations, Indonesia-China relations, politico-security developments in the Indo-Pacific region and Australian foreign policy. Greta is an Adjunct Research Fellow at Griffith Asia Institute and Executive Council Member of the Australian Institute of International Affairs (AIIA QLD).
