I am a socio-cultural anthropologist specializing in Southeast Asia and Indonesia. My ethnographic research in Indonesia has focused on the social and cultural effects of democratic change on the urban underclass in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. In particular, my research explores democratic change from the perspective of street vendors, government officials, and NGOs entangled in battles over public space.
