Dinda is a PhD researcher within the Environmental Governance and Environmental Science section at Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development. Dinda's current doctoral pursuit is dedicated to unraveling the ecological and governance potentials, as well as the limits, of mangrove nature-based solutions (NbS) in Indonesia. Through her research, she endeavors to redefine this critical concept to ensure resilience and sustainability. Her project will integrates the natural sciences, with a specific focus on ecology and ecological restoration, alongside the social sciences, emphasizing human geography and environmental governance within an NbS and mangrove-system context. 

Prior to pursuing her PhD, Dinda finished her master's degree in Sustainable Development at KU Leuven and completed her undergraduate program in Biology at Bandung Institute of Technology (Institut Teknologi Bandung). With about 6 years of professional experience, she has been actively involved in nature and biodiversity conservation.
