In his Ph.D. dissertation, Land change history of oil palm plantations in northern Bengkulu Province, Sumatra Island, reconstructed from Landsat satellite archives, he developed a robust system for detecting land cover change which combined several remotely sensed data such as Landsat time series, multi-temporal Google Earth images, and ALOS-2/PALSAR-2. His current interests include utilizing all available remotely sensed data to establish robust land monitoring systems.
