Cem is responsible for case management and network development in Southeast Asia and Oceania, mainly focusing on Indonesia, Myanmar, and the Philippines. He has published investigative research on Myanmar since 2003, and has conducted fieldwork in Indonesia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Singapore, Australia, Papua, and Malaysia. He has also been involved in multiple complex global asset traces across Europe, Africa, and the West Pacific.
Prior to joining Kroll, Cem spent over a decade working in six Asia Pacific markets, including India, Thailand, and Korea. In addition to political journalism and NGO work, he produced publications for Japanese, Australian, and international media focusing on Asian trade and investment.
