On 3 April, two PIES students, Zulfatun Ni’mah (left) and Nikmahtullah (right) presented their research to the PIES seminar group. Regular seminars with the program’s director Greg Fealy and academic manager Sally White take place fortnightly, giving students the opportunity to present, and to improve their academic skills and experience.
On 12 April, Damanhuri and Norman Ohira presented their research.
