Peat Related Professional Experience/History: In 2009-2010, I involved in a project of siviculture review on ramin in Indonesia. In 2010, I was a co-leader of a project ecosystem service assessment and human livelihood in peatlands of Tripa ecosystem, Aceh. in 2012-2014, I conducted my post doctoral research on agroforestry in peatlands in Jambi and Central Kalimantan, and domestication of Dyerra polyphylla. In 2014-2015, I led a project of Peat Fire Risk Management in Jambi. In 2015-2016, I conducted research on susceptibility of peatland fire in Pelalawan district Riau and Musi Banyuasin district, South Sumatra. In 2015, I was a consultant for Wetlands Indonesia for review of paludiculture in Indonesia. The first book on Paludiculture in Indonesia has been published in 2016. In 2017 up to present, I have been conducting research on degraded peatland restoration in Jambi. Starting early 2018, I am involved in a collaborative research with ICRAF Southeast Asia and Palangkaraya University on Developing agroforestry on rewetted peatland in Central Kalimantan. I am focusing on plant traits of adapted tree on wet and rewetted peatlands.
