Luc Renambot received a PhD at the University of Rennes in France, conducting research on parallel rendering algorithms for illumination simulation. He then held a Post-doctoral position at the Free University of Amsterdam, where he worked on bringing education and scientific visualization to virtual-reality environments. Since 2003, he has been at UIC/EVL, first as a Post-doc and now as a Research Associate Professor in Computer Science, where his research topics include high-resolution displays, computer graphics, parallel computing, and high-speed networking.
Jason Leigh is the director of LAVA: the Laboratory for Advanced Visualization & applications, and Professor of Information & Computer Sciences at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa. He is co-inventor of the CAVE2 Hybrid Reality Environment, and SAGE: Scalable Adaptive Graphics Environment software, which has been licensed to Mechdyne Corporation & Vadiza Corporation, respectively.
Dylan Kobayashi - A graduate student attending University of Hawaii at Manoa. One year into the PhD program of computer science. Have been working on SAGE2 for about two years now. Interested in groups environments, networks, and alternative ways to communicate information like virtual and augmented reality.
Brock Palen and Jeff Squyres speak with the creators of The Integrated Rule-Oriented Data System (iRODS) open source data management software used by research organizations and government agencies worldwide.
With over 19 years of industry experience, Jason has worked in a variety of areas including Virtual Reality, EDA, Visualization, and Data Management. Prior to RENCI, Jason was Technical Director for a startup where he developed projection and distortion correction technologies. During his tenure at RENCI Jason Coposky began as the first member of the Visualization team, creating novel large format display and multitouch systems. He then moved to the irods@renci project as technical lead where he later became Chief Technologist of the iRODS Consortium. In his current role, he now provides management oversight for the entire Consortium.
Terrell Russell works on build and test for iRODS as well as code review, package management, documentation, and high level architecture design. He’s interested in distributed systems, metadata, security, and open source software that accelerates science. Terrell holds a B.S. in Computer Engineering, a B.S. in Information Technology and Service Organizations, and an M.S. in Computer Networking from North Carolina State University, and a Ph.D. in Information Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Terrell has been working on iRODS since 2008.
