Indra Bayu Vimono

Indra Bayu Vimono, merupakan peneliti biologi laut di Pusat Penelitian Oseanografi LIPI. Bidang kajiannya adalah mengenai Ekhinodermata dan tergabung dalam kelompok peneliti Bentos. Memiliki ketertarikan husus pada riset mengenai bintang laut dan bulu babi, yang merupakan dua diantara banyak jenis bentos asosiasi terumbu karang dan padang lamun. Pengalaman sebagai pelatih dan asesor Penilai Kondisi Megabentos berdasarkan metode yang dikembangkan COREMAP menjadi dasar untuk berpartisipasi pada kegiatan monitoring COREMAP-CTI serta pada kegiatan COREMAP lainnya, seperti pada kegiatan pelatihan melalui UNESCO/IOC WESTPAC Regional Training and Research Center for Marine Biodiversity and Ecosystem Health (RTRC MarBEST). Baginya, belajar meneliti dan  pengalaman manajerial di COREMAP-CTI merupakan kesempatan yang baik untuk mengembangkan diri.

Elsa Dianita Aulia

I am Elsa Dianita Aulia, people usually call me Elsa. I was born in Majalengka on February 10, 1999. In August 2020, I have finished my undergraduate in Biology, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) with the cumulative GPA 3.59/4.00. When I was an undergraduate, I had a study specification regarding zoology and ecology, where my final project was about the impact of human activity in the coastal area to the echinoderms community (their diversity and abundance) supervised by Mr Farid Kamal Muzaki, M.Si. I was introduced to and touched on many topics about marine biology. I took many courses specific on it such as biomonitoring, population ecology, conservation biology, biology of coral, marine invertebrate, plankton ecology, scientific diving, and others. Going to the field to take samples, analyze it in the lab, and find out what’s going on under the sea is something that I love.

            Besides, I also had the opportunity as an exchange student for one semester in early 2019 to the Biology Department, Chulalongkorn University, Thailand. I learned a lot from each course that I took, as well as the scientific thinking and the study atmosphere there. One that is important to me as I had to do a research project. My supervisor, Dr. Thongchai Ngamprasertwong, really guides me on how to build up my research ideas independently, rather than directly giving the topic. He often said “let’s try to think scientifically”, whether when building up with ideas, solving problems during a project, or how to generate critical thinking while interpreting the result. At that time, I thought I didn’t have enough prior knowledge, and I was doing it overseas. However, the more often I discussed with my supervisor and lab friends there, read a lot of papers, the more I liked what I did, it made me feel challenged. I ended up choosing the research about the effect of cave tourism on bat behavior, and I did well, getting an A for the project.

            Apart from academic activities, I joined some organization and volunteer on campus. I was a secretary in some organization and event, including in Student Activity Units Coordinator (LMB ITS 2019), Merpati Putih Student Club (2017-2018), and in the Student Association’s Big Event (National Biology Olympiad ITS included). When I was a secretary, I worked on and learned administrative processes such as meeting minutes, attendance, proposals, correspondence, and other data. But besides that, I also learned to communicate and build relationships with stakeholders. Then regarding volunteering activities, I assisted the CommTech Camp Insight 2020’s participant in field practicum of a biology course.

            Afterwards, for additional information about me, I like painting and sports. Currently, I have a blog and an Instagram account about my paintings on biodiversity. As a biologist, I feel responsible for spreading information to the community or maybe just people around about living things (biodiversity). All in all, I love my study background and I want to be a person who plays a role or make a positive impact on the environment, whether it’s small or large scale. And volunteering for the Coremap Project is one of the things I can do.

Giyanto was involved in COREMAP activities at the end of 2000, after completing his Master's degree in Ecological Marine Management at VrijeUniversiteit Brussel in Belgium. Focusing on the ecology of coral reefs, he has carried out monitoring activities on coral reef health in many coral reef ecosystems in Indonesia. In 2006, he continued his studies in the Doctoral program in Marine Technology at IPB University in Bogor-Indonesia and graduated in 2010. He developed a method of data collection and analysis for coral reefs which was known as the Underwater Photo Transect method. This method is applied in coral reef health monitoring in Indonesia. He has also developed a health index for Indonesia's coral.
