Dr. Joseph Botting has recently completed a fellowship for Young International Scientists at the Nanjing Institute of Geology and Palaeontology. He started working in the Builth Inlier as an undergraduate at Cambridge, and completed his PhD, which was partly on faunas from the area, at the University of Birmingham in 2000. Most of his publications have been on sponges, but he has also worked on echinoderms, worms, trilobites, palaeoecology and several Ordovician Lagerstätten. His research is currently focused on the early evolution of sponges, with forays into exceptionally preserved biotas in China, Morocco, the UK and North America.

Dr. Lucy Muir is primarily a graptolite worker and palaeoecologist, but has published on a variety of other things, including museum collections and modern ecology. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Cambridge (1997) and then undertook an MSc in Palaeobiology at the University of Bristol (1999). Since gaining her PhD from the University of Edinburgh in 2004, she has worked as a museum curator and a freelance geological consultant. She has recently returned to the UK after a two-year postdoctoral position at the Nanjing Institute of Geology and Palaeontology, where she worked on a comparison of Ordovician Lagerstätten in Wales, China and Morocco.

(Alex) Jih-Pai Lin is a professor working on Burgess Shale-type deposits worldwide at the CAS Nanjing Institute of Geology and Palaeontology. He graduated and completed his PhD work at the Ohio State University and conducted a postdoctoral position at Yale University. After arriving at the Nanjing he has actively recruited young scientists to join his research team (bst.uua.cn), supported by the Chinese Academy of Sciences Project-Oriented Hundred Talents Programme. He and his research group mainly focus on the early evolution of echinoderms and related animals.
