Prof. Dr Donald Quicke has had more than 40 years' experience teaching undergraduate and postgraduate biology students, initially at Sheffield University, UK and then at Imperial College London. He retired in 2013 and is now a teaching research fellow at the Department of Biology, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand. He is one of the world's leading experts on the taxonomy and systematics and biology of parasitoid wasps. Buntika A. Butcher has worked parasitoid wasps (plus some forensic entomology) since gaining her PhD in the Department of Biology, Imperial College London in 2004. On returning to Thailand she was appointed to a lectureship at Chulalongkorn University Bangkok and was subsequently promoted to Associate Professor in 2015. She has published more than 60 papers and has supervised numerous entomology students to masters anddoctoral degree levels. Dr Rachel Kruft Welton did her master's degree at Imperial College, London and a PhD at University of Birmingham, UK before qualifying as a teacher. She has been a professional biology and science tutor for nearly 20 years, including mentoring undergraduates as part of Birmingham University's alumni scheme.
