Fundamental knowledge about Sargassuxn and related micro-organisms
Basic knowledge on Sargassum and overview of the current results from the 2017 cruises
Dr Frédéric Ménard
Research director at the Research Institute for Development France
He conducts research on the functioning of marine ecosystems in the context of global change: ecology, predator-prey relationships, fisheries and biodiversity.
Since 2016, he has been leading two projects of the Ministry of Ecology on Sargassum.
In situ observations of diversity and distribution of Sargassum and associated fauna
Dr Amy Siuda
Ecker College - Floride
For over a decade, she has studied the distribution and diversity of pelagic Sargassum and its closely associated faunal community.
In 2015, Dr. Siuda and colleagues were the first to recognize that a previously rare Sargassum form was abundant in the equatorial Atlantic as well as in the newly episodic Caribbean inundation events.
Fundametal knowledge on Sargassum on their associated microorganisms
Dr Pascal Jean Lopez
Researcher - French National Centre for Scientific Research
A microbiologist by training and holder of a doctoral thesis carried out at the École Normale Supérieure, he is now co-head of a research team at the Biology of Aquatic Organisms and Ecosystems Laboratory, which is located at the National History Museum Natural in Paris and also at the University of the Antilles.

Javier is graduated from Engineering in Computer Systems. He obtained a master's degree in mechatronics and a Ph.D. in Computer Science.He is currently part of the academic group of the "Station for the reception of satellite information" ERIS Chetumal, where he has developed different software for the operation of the station and has created ERISNet.
Communicating Sargassum Forecasts
Hazel A. Oxenford
Professor of Marine Ecology and Fisheries CERMES, University of the West Indies, Cave Hill, Barbados
She is now well known regionally and internationally for her work in applied fisheries biology (especially flyingfish), coral reef ecology, and the impacts of climate change on marine ecosystems.
