Research interests:My research interest is to design and develop sustainable dairy production in Indonesia. I quantified the environmental impact assessment such as greenhouse gas emissions and nutrient losses from dairy production chain, and try to find potential solutions to reduce the emissions. Manure management is another important aspect of my research. Pollution from manure of dairy farms is considerable and contributing to the emissions such as eutrophication and acidification. In addition, I quantified N2O and CH4 emissions during storage and application of manure, while also investigated the N and P losses to the local river in relation to dairy production.
