About: Ariane is a social demographer, working primarily on marriage and family change in Indonesia. Her research examines how the dynamics of demographic and social change relate to attitudes to gender roles; school to work transition; women’s employment; marriage, fertility and family patterns; and the nature of inequalities and social stratification in Indonesia. More recently, she has begun to focus on ageing and migration in Australia. She grew up in Jakarta, and is currently Lecturer in Demography at the School of Geography, Earth and Social Sciences at the University of Melbourne. Prior to this she was a Research Fellow at the ANU Crawford School of Public Policy, and the Australian Demographic and Social Research Institute, ANU.
