Emir is a PhD Candidate at the Strategic and Defence Study Center at the Australian National University. Emir is inherently curious about the process that drives scholars to produce their groundbreaking works. In this series, he asks insightful questions to understand better what drives the Southeast Asianists into the field, their interactions with their environment as they conduct fieldwork, their writing process, their struggles, and what thoughts often keep them from sleeping at night when thinking about the region.
