About

I have experiences in social, environmental, economic, and forestry research. Starting my career as an environment education awareness, I carried out an environmental awareness campaign in more than 400 villages in rural Laos. My background is Forestry (B.Sc. & M.Sc. degrees), and For the PhD degree, I developed micro-macro economic modelling framework to assess macroeconomic policy. I am currently providing consultant services to governmental and international organisation clients on forestry, social, environmental, and economic issues.
