I was born in Koh Sotin Commune, Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia. Growing up next to one of the Mekong River tributaries, locally known as TonleTauch, (Small River) I enjoyed fishing, swimming, and growing crops behind my house throughout my childhood. My research interests include human-environment interaction in Cambodia and especially any development activities which both affect and promote the livelihood of local communities in remote areas and near the rivers of Cambodia where I am from.
