Research associate, University of Sydney

I am a historian, specialising in the history of premodern Southeast Asia. I have a PhD and an MA (Research) in history, with a research focus on the indigenous historical texts and traditions of Indonesia. I am currently employed as a postdoctoral research fellow as the École française d'Extrême-Orient (French School of Asian Studies), and I am also currently a Research Affiliate with the School of Languages and Cultures and the Sydney Southeast Asia Centre (SSEAC) at the University of Sydney. I have extensive experience of communicating my research to general audiences, in the form of articles, public talks and podcasts.
