Research summary > [Click to expand]

My work examines the effects of political reform on everyday life at the individual and local level. To date I have been especially interested in examining how decentralisation and democratisation have been perceived and responded to in Indonesia.

I also have research interests in how policy efforts to improve 'human capital' transform people's lived experience, as well as their understandings of self and citizenship.
