I am a lecturer at Agribusiness Department, Faculty of Agriculture, University of Jambi (UNJA), Indonesia. My research focuses on Designing effective policy instruments to induce sustainable land use. It covers from specific issues such as farming based on local policy instruments, to broader issues such as impact of government policy in inducing sustainable land use. I approach these issues empirically which reflect my interest in agricultural policy and agricultural economics. Currently, I serve as the Head of Agribusiness Laboratory Faculty of Agriculture, University of Jambi.
