Arini Wijayanti, PhD Student
Arini Wijayanti was born and raised in Indonesia. Her fondness in drawing and nature made her choose biology as her education of interest. Her past research focused on local avifauna in remote wetland areas in East Kalimantan. After she graduated from Gadjah Mada University in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, she became a seasonal ornithologist. She later branched out to do research on mangrove and seagrass during her time as a junior researcher within the Fisheries and Marine Science Faculty at Mulawarman University.
Her research interests are in tropical wetland biodiversity and conservation. Her goal is to understand freshwater land degradation trends in Indonesia and the best possible ways to restore small natural wetlands.
