potential for the valorization of Peruvian grain biodiversity
Functional evaluationFunctional food production house
Starting from soil remedial using organic fertilizers and natural green
manures, the data base of local nutrition is developed to help society and
government in managing public health sustainability. I have conducted research on
yellow pumpkin and diabetes mellitus related diet components, modified root and
tubers post harvest technology, velvet bean and Rhizopus sp. hybridization, and
currently pursue (a) scaling up a production house for Health Ingredient
based on commodities I have started with in the previous research and (b) field
testing of organic fertilizer produced by my industrial partner for food plants
in the high priority commodities of Indonesian Government. Overall, the end
goal of research and development is to improve farmer welfare in Indonesia
through the window opportunity of functional food resources.
Moral imagination, sensitivity, judgment, intention and behavior, social welfare in Indonesia
Corporate and financial scandals are rising steadily each year (Global Economic Survey, 2015, Sullivan 2006), resulting in a credibility crisis in the accounting profession, managers and businesses. This raises questions about the effectiveness of ethics education. Effective ethics education helps students have the skills to make ethical decisions. I will develop instruments used to teach business and accounting profession ethics effectively using immersive virtual technology and then examine whether the instruments are able to increase moral imagination, sensitivity, judgment, intention and behavior. Effective ethics education is expected to increase ethics behavior of the university graduates and the ethical, i.e. no corruption, behavior is expected to positively affect economic development and social welfare of Indonesia.
