Abdulla-Al-Asif (PhD), a scientist, researcher, editor, and author from Bangladesh, specializes in marine ecology and biology. His research focuses on the seagrass-mangrove complex, associated benthos ecology, and blue carbon dynamics in the South China Sea (Western Pacific Ocean). At present, Dr. Al-Asif holds the esteemed position of Executive Director at Genesis Research Consultancy Limited (GRCL). This globally recognized research consultancy company stands at the forefront, catering to a diverse clientele that includes students, authors, editors, journals, researchers, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), medical health professionals, and numerous other stakeholders. GRCL’s reach extends across various sectors, making it a world-leading entity in the field of research consultancy services.

He has a keen interest in aquaculture, particularly fish farming-related technologies, such as Responsible Aquaculture Practices (RAP), and has received training in studying marine ecology and biodiversity. Previously, he worked as a professional consultant and advocate for freshwater aquaculture disease management at the in-situ level. Dr. Al-Asif is an experienced academic marine ecologist who has investigated seagrass-mangrove-associated gastropods, bivalves, and other benthos, mainly in Sarawak, Malaysia. His past work experience with Spirulina platensis aquaculture and diversity assessment of other marine phytoplankton has influenced his current research.
