Vicky Ariyanti (1981) is a PhD candidate at the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS) of Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR).

In her dissertation - under supervision of prof.dr. Jurian Edelenbos and dr. Peter Scholten, IHS - she investigates the influence of cultural ecological knowledge in water resources management. She focuses her study on the case of volcanic river basin in Yogyakarta Special Region, Indonesia.

The knowledge in managing natural resource management, especially water and its related resources from the cultural perspective evolved with the process of understanding values and meanings behind communities’ actions. Meanwhile, the current approach on water resources management bases its foundation in technical and engineering solutions. It is her interest to work on social and cultural aspects of water management as an added value of her research. Ariyanti aims to incorporate this aspect of knowledge into the current approach of integrated water resources management.

Prior to her PhD trajectory, she works as government officer at the Ministry of Public Works and Housing in Indonesia. Her background in policy making decisions processes and technical planner gives her a special standpoint as a researcher. She is awarded LPDP scholarship from the Indonesian Ministry of Finance to pursue her PhD starting 2015. As a planner, her academic backgrounds are M.Sc in urban studies (2008) and M.Eng in urban planning (2011). She also has a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture (2004).
