She has over a decade of experience working in mainland Southeast Asia facilitating research capacity building on land uses change and natural resource management with national universities and research institutions. She carried out research on land policies in Laos, supported by the International Development Research Centre of Canada and coordinated studies on land use change dynamics in northern Laos together with researchers from the National University of Laos and the East West Center of Hawaii (funded by the National Science Foundation). She also worked as an advisor of a research capacity development programme in Laos supported by the Swedish International Development Agency. After working in Laos, she worked with the University of Chicago and taught courses on sustainable development, and political economy of natural resources in Southeast Asia.
