I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development, Utrecht University. My research explores the intersections of development, capitalism, environment and heritage/inheritance. My doctoral research investigated how the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) manifest in contemporary development practice under evolving dynamics of financialisation and ‘North-South’ relations. In my current research, I use historical and ethnographic methods to study how people perceive climatic/environmental changes in relation to the future of their cultural heritage, with a focus on Lamalera in East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. I previously worked for the United Nations in Indonesia (UNORCID) and India (UNEP).
