I am currently serving as the Dean of Faculty of Agriculture at Udayana University, Bali, Indonesia.
I was born and raised in Tabanan, Bali before I went to IPB, Bogor for my bachelor’s degree in agriculture. I received my doctorate in agriculture from Udayana University with a sandwich program at the University of Twente (The Netherlands).
I am an associate professor in agribusiness and have been teaching at Udayana University for almost 35 years. My research topics include sustainable ecotourism and agriculture, agricultural cooperative models, and Subak-based agribusiness. I have been actively collaborating with researchers from various institutions, including Bandung Institute of Technology, Indonesian Financial Service Authority, SEARCA, and UNDP.
