Dato' Dr Adi Taha was Director-General of the Department of Museums & Antiquities in Malaysia, which organised the exhibition Marine Archaeology in Malaysia, and commissioned the related book, Maritime Archaeology and Shipwreck Ceramics in Malaysia¹.

They co-authored Maritime archaeology and shipwreck ceramics in Malaysia¹, and Turiang: a fourteenth century shipwreck in Southeast Asian waters². At the time of the "seven shipwrecks" exhibition, Roxanna was adjunct curator of Southeast Asian ceramics at Pacific Asia Museum in Pasadena, California. She later became the first director of the Southeast Asian Ceramics Museum in Bangkok. She passed away in tragic circumstances in May 2008.
