- Rachael Brady specializes in the use of technology to aid data exploration and analysis. She promotes the use of visualization and virtual reality technologies for improved understanding of scientific data and human cognition. With nearly twenty years of experience, she is a leader in the creation of facilities and development of solutions that combine statistical methods, digital image processing methods, and visualization methods to provide insight into scientific questions.
- Donna Cox is a Professor in the School of Art and Design, and the Director of the Advanced Scientific Visualization Laboratory at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She has published and exhibited internationally, presented keynotes, and received numerous awards on the 'art of scientific visualization' specializing in 3-dimensional time-evolving computational science. See http://www.ncsa.uiuc.edu/~cox/
- Angela DePace is a biologist with a long-standing interest in quantitative imaging and visual thinking in science. In her graduate work, she used atomic force microscopy to show that prions can form multiple pathogenic shapes. Currently, she is applying high resolution fluorescence microscopy and advanced image processing to build a 3D atlas of gene expression in multiple fruitfly species.
- Michael Halle is an instructor of radiology at Harvard Medical School, and the director of technology development and visualization within the Surgical Planning Lab at Brigham and Women's Hospital. He currently works in the areas of medical and scientific visualization, three-dimensional display, image capture, computer graphics, software and systems architecture, networked systems, and semantic data exchange.
- Rebecca Perry has been a visual journalist for the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times. She has contributed graphics to Pulitzer prize-winning news coverage and her work has been recognized by the Society of News Design. After a year as a Knight Science Journalism Fellow, she has returned to graduate studies in New York City, where her research focuses on science journalism and the visual communication of science.
- Daniela Rosner is currently a graduate student in the School for Information at UC Berkeley, where she studies Human Computer Interaction. Her interests focus on the development and evaluation of data visualizations, mainly in interactive form. She has always considered herself to be cross-disciplinary in nature and has enjoyed working at the interface of the fields of design and computer science.
- Andy Yang is interested in the use of scientific visualizations by students, teachers, and researchers alike, and especially in the historical development of visualizations in evolutionary and developmental biology. An Assistant Professor of Biology and Liberal Arts, he teaches courses on biological visualization at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
