Biological Systems and Organisms

My main research interest in on terrestrial Gastropods (land snails). For several years I have been working on the biosystematics, ecology, and biogeography of Java land snails. Currently, I am working on the Biology of land snails in Java, Indonesia and their bio active compound from the its slime.

Prizes, Grants and Awards

Other Awards

Nov 2019
L'oreal-UNESCO For Women in Science, National Fellowship 2019, Indonesia
Established globally by L’Oréal and UNESCO in 1998 and launched nationally in Indonesia in 2004, L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women In Science has recognized and encouraged female scientists who move science forward because we believe that the world needs science and science needs women. Since 2004, 53 young female Indonesian scientists has been awarded which five of whom have received international awards. In 2019, L’Oréal Indonesia in collaboration with the Indonesian National Commission for UNESCO, Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia award four female winners of young Indonesian scientists as National Fellows for L'Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science (FWIS) 2019.
Dec 2019
Tony Whitten Conservation Prize
Tony Whitten (1953-2017) was an inspirational conservationist who championed biodiversity across Asia and beyond. He was Senior Advisor at Fauna and Flora International (serving as Director of its Asia-Pacific programme), and before that Senior Biodiversity Specialist at the World Bank. Alongside helping run conservation projects across Asia, Tony did world-class work on the discovery and conservation of limestone cave invertebrates, saving many species from obliteration by the region’s rapidly expanding cement industry, and having no fewer than 11 new species named in his honour. He also recently established the IUCN Cave Invertebrate Specialist Group. As a tribute to Tony the Cambridge Conservation Initiative is delighted to invite applications for this award for early career conservationists and biodiversity researchers from East and Southeast Asia. The prize is open to those under the age of 35 involved in any area of conservation or field biology in the region. Prizes will be awarded by a panel selected by Tony's family. The panel is especially interested in hearing about work on the overlooked species and habitats that Tony was most passionate about – such as caves and karst ecosystems, and understudied invertebrates and fishes. The fund is able to provide three prizes of £1000 each in late 2019, with further rounds in the following two years. Applicants should be nationals of Brunei, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Timor Leste or Vietnam.
