Jinwei Gu is an Assistant Professor in the Center for Imaging Science. He joined RIT in 2010 after completing a Ph.D. in the Computer Science Department of Columbia University with Prof. Shree Nayar, Prof. Peter Belhumeur, and Prof. Ravi Ramamoorthi. His research interests are computational imaging, computer vision and computer graphics. He is particularly interested in understanding and modeling the physics-based image formation mechanism and the intrinsic structure of the visual appearance of various types of natural phenomena, and applying them in: computational photography for capturing high-quality, information-rich photographs and videos, physics-based computer vision for recovering higher-level information such as geometry, material properties, and illumination, and data-driven computer graphics for acquiring and recreating realistic visual appearance of natural phenomena.

Sai Mulpuru has an undergraduate degree in B.Tech from National Institute of Technology, India, and is currently doing an M.S. in Imaging Science. His research interests are primarily integrating eye tracking with computer vision, and feature extraction for content based image retrieval systems. His other interests include robotics and glider designing.

Terlene Romney is a second year graduate student working under the supervision of Dr. Anne Haake at the MVRL lab, currently pursuing a Masters degree in Human-Computer Interaction. She has received her undergraduate degree in Information Technology and Informatics at Rutgers University-New Brunswick. Terlene has gained eye-tracking experience in coursework (4002-744: Eye Tracking: Theory, Methods, and Applications] and as a research assistant to Dr. Haake in a research project involving dermatology and eye-tracking. She is currently involved in her thesis, circumventing eye tracking, biometrics, and interaction input styles..
