1.I am interested in using biotechnology tools on wildlife models, particularly mammals for long-term conservation and management of protected areas. 2.Borneo as the center of high biodiversity provide a good test bed to integrate both molecular and morphological interpretation of fauna in making decision related to their conservation and the management plan of their habitat. 3.I am majoring in “Molecular Systematics and Evolution” which is a multidisciplinary program that is based on molecular genetics, morphology, and bioinformatics for my Ph.D. 4.Currently, I am working on my Ph.D. degree at Texas Tech University under the supervision of Professor Dr. Robert J. Baker. My interest is on the systematics and taxonomy of Indo-Malayan mammals. My thesis research focuses on the alpha-systematics of Malaysian bats. I use morphology and molecular tools to identify the evolutionary lineages that can be then used to establish taxonomic units. I aim to understand the diversity of several genera in these groups, looking for common patterns in their distribution and origin. I am also very keen in understanding the tropical rainforest landscape in Southeast Asia that has undergone contraction and expansion during the cyclic event of glaciations by interpreting the distribution, and genetic variation of these bats.
