Dr. Agus Dana Permana is currently focuses on the research with beneficial insects, such as pollinator of oil palm (Elaeidobius kamerunicus), and black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens). Previously, he has done number of projects on the identification and field test of sex pheromone of several insects pests, including Etiella zinckenella, Spodoptera litura, Phthorimaea operculella, Plutella xylostella, Scirpophaga nivella and Homoeosoma nebulella. His expertise also covers entomopathogenic (fungi, bacteria and viruses) and several botanical insecticides (Neem extract); Ecology, and Physiology of insect, for example the effect of thyroxin on the cocoon of Bombyx mori. Over 15 years, he has been principal investigator on several grants and contracts i.e. Ecological study on PT Freeport Indonesia, Tembagapura, Papua (2001-2002); Soil analysis for oil palm plantation in Boven Digul and Fak-fak, Papua (2005-2006); Biodiversity study in Nani Bogani Wartabone National Park, Gorontalo (2009-2012); Ecological study of mined land in Sorowako, South Sulawesi (2012); and Study of flora and fauna at Tomini Bay, Gorontalo (2012-2013).
