My expertise is in biochemistry. My research focuses on photosynthesis, mainly related to carotenoid pigments and their functional applications for foods and health. Carotenoids are though beneficial in lowering inflammation, promoting healthy growth and development, maintaining eye and vision health, boosting immunity, and protecting the skin from damage. My research deals mainly with various local/exotic fruits and edible species of Indonesia, including marine algae and seaweeds.
I am also interested in interdisciplinary approaches to explore and analyze food systems and networks' relationships, influences, and impacts to enhance social, economic, and environmental sustainability and equity. The impact of my research on Indonesian government policy has led to me receiving a Professional Achievement Award from the British Council in 2017.
In the current digital era, my research also uses artificial intelligence (AI) and spectrometric approaches to help farmers monitor their crops' status, biodiversity, and natural health to ensure ecological and sustainable land use. Please visit research.
