The list below itemises my academic publications. Impact factor ratings are provided where available. With over 1000 citations, my publications are consistently in the top 0.5% and top 1% of highly viewed research articles on as well as in the top 0.1% for dance anthropology. I regularly present at conferences, frequently write book reviews and have served as a reviewer for numerous international journals. Over the past few years, I have also been a writer for academic blogs hosted by the TB-CRE, the Woolcock Institute, the Public Library of Science, by A/Prof Daniel Lende and A/Prof Greg Downey, and by the Department of Anthropology at Macquarie University.

"It is somewhat rare to find interdisciplinary work dealing closely with music while still remaining intelligible to scholars outside of (ethno)musicology. The Fighting Art of Pencak Silat and Its Music is a fine example of how martial arts studies can encompass musical (and choreographic) considerations alongside issues of culture, society, religion, ritual, media, politics, nationalism, identity, gender, and embodiment."

The breadth of these publications highlights my capacity to bring anthropological perspectives and apply systems thinking to a variety of problems in multiple disciplines. With skills in multidisciplinary research, I have acted as a reviewer for the Journal of Bioethical Inquiry, MUSICultures, the academic journal of the Canadian Society for Traditional Music, BioSystems, Theoretical Biology and Medical Modelling, Foundations of Science, and The Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology.

Since 2005, I have published over nine book chapters, 35 peer-reviewed articles, 24 book reviews, and delivered over thirty presentations. I have also published foreign articles in French (Culture-Kairos, 2012), in Indonesian (Gema Seni, 2007), and Malaysian (JATI, 2008) and Translated various works into English and French. In co-authored papers, the author who led the research and contributed the most to the article is listed first. I am listed first in several of these co-authored papers. As an early career researcher, I have chosen to publish a number of my articles in online open access journals such as Cultures-Kairós, Global Ethnographic, Inside Indonesia and Hypothesis. Online open access articles increase the accessibility and readership of research. For example, my co-authored article in Hypothesis has been the most highly viewed article and consistently in the top ten most highly cited articles in that journal since it was published. Cumulative statistics from, tandfonline, and researchgate indicate that my articles have been viewed almost 20,000 times. "Music, dance and the Total Art Work", "Brain, Dance and Culture I & II", and "Alam, Otak, dan Kebudayaan" have been my most highly viewed articles. My work on choreomusicology has been used in course curricula at the Royal Academy of Dance in London, Macquarie University, Denison University, the University of Dance and Circus in Sweden, and the Vlaams Theater Instituut in Belgium.
