Monica please check the names to ensure that its what Prof wants. This
is what I am going to write.
One of the researchers in my institution feels that the authority form
of his name is wrong and should be vanderpost, Cornelis and not Van der
post, Cornelis. What is the way forward inensuring that the authority
name is corrected.
