I am currently an External Ph.D candidate at the department of Social and Cultural Anthropology, VU University Amsterdam. My research focuses on Islam and environmental issues in Indonesia. In this research I am what has been called a ‘native ethnographer’ or ‘native anthropologist’ because I was born [in] and come from the same background; culture, language, and even religion with the community. The native ethnographer or anthropologist generally is a researcher who belongs to the research community by birth, but is professionally trained as a researcher.
In 2018, I had an opportunity to visit Saudi Arabia to perform the Hajj (pilgrimage). During the Hajj, I made a brief observations about phenomenon of Hajj and environmentalism. In addition to complete my Ph.D research, I have been active in the Islamic organization and pointed as Chairman of Nahdlatul Ulama for the Netherlands as part of the largest moderate of Islamic organization in Indonesia in 2017-2019,
In 2002, I completed my bachelor at Faculty of Dakwah, State Institute for Islamic Studies (IAIN) Walisongo Semarang. I then took for my Master in Islamic studies at the same university, and finished in 2007. In 2013, I participated in Training Strengthening Research Capacity at VU Amsterdam organized by IAIN Walisongo in collaboration with VU Amsterdam. In February 2015, I started my PhD at the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology VU Amsterdam funded by the Indonesia Endowment Fund for Education (LPDP).
