Aquaculture development in Indonesia is important for economic growth, but it faces many environmental challenges. I usually work as a Researcher at the Research Institute for Coastal Aquaculture in Maros, Indonesia. Since 2009, I have been undertaking my PhD research at UNSW on a John Allwright Fellowship awarded under an ACIAR project managed at UNSW. I previously completed a Master of Science degree at UNSW under an Australian Development Scholarship from AusAID. My current research aims to develop and improve spatial analytical approaches for aquaculture site selection over large regions (small scale). Also, my research is investigating detailed (large scale) spatial methods to better understand local variation in the environment to improve site suitability assessment and determine carrying capacity for traditional brackishwater aquaculture development and management. My main study site is Barru in South Sulawesi, but my findings will have broader application for coastal management in Indonesia and the region.
