Dr Chen Chanratana, founder and president of the Kerdomnel Khmer Foundation, combines a notable academic cursus (graduate from Sorbonne University in Archeology & Arts, Professor at the Faculty of Archeology, Royal University of Fine Arts, Cambodia) with a career in media & communications, as a producer of educational and cultural programs for Southeast Asia Television (SEATV).

As an archaeologist, he has particularly worked on the Koh Ker sites, northeast of Angkor, and the quest for Khmer capital cities of the pre-Angkorean era.
