Khanjanapaj Lewmanomont is an emeritus professor of fishery biology at Kasetsart University. She obtained her MSc degree in fisheries from the University of Michigan. Her major research interests are on taxonomy, ecology and cultivation of marine algae. She is currently working in Plant Genetic Conservation Project under the Royal Initiation of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn (RSPG).
Anchana Prathep leads the Seaweed and Seagrass Research Unit at Prince of Songkla University, Thailand. Her work focuses on seaweed and seagrass ecology and their ecosystem services. Recently, she has been trying to understand how much seaweeds and seagrasses contribute to carbon sequestration and storage, as well as how they respond to a changing world.
Ryuta Terada is a professor at the United Graduate School of Agricultural Sciences, Kagoshima University. His research is particularly focused on the diversity and ecophysiology of marine macroalgae in relation to climate change.
