Ollie Cossairt is an Assistant Professor in the EECS Department at Northwestern University. His research interests lie at the intersection of optics, computer vision, and computer graphics. Before  joining Northwestern, he spent one year (Oct. 2011 – Aug. 2012) as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Columbia University, under the supervision of Professor Prof. Shree Nayar. He earned his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Columbia University. In September 2011, he completed his dissertation on The Limits and Tradeoffs in Computational Imaging. From September 2006-2011, he was a doctoral candidate at Columbia University under the advisement Prof. Shree Nayar and Prof. Peter Belhumeur. He received an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship from 2008-2011. From 2003-2006, he worked as an Optical and Software Engineer, managing a NIST ATP research initiative to develop next generation 3D displays for a Actuality Systems. In 2003, he recieved an M.S. from the MIT Media Lab, where he worked with the Spatial Imaging Group and wrote his thesis on View-Sequential 3D Displays.

Marc Walton currently holds the position of Research Associate Professor of Materials Science and Engineering in the McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science at Northwestern University. He was trained in Chemistry and Art History at Clark University. He earned a D.Phil. from the University of Oxford in archaeological science following an MA in art history, as well as a diploma in the conservation of works of art, from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. After earning his Ph.D, Marc worked at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art for two years prior to joining the Getty Conservation Institute in 2005, where he was an associate scientist responsible for the scientific study of antiquities at the J. Paul Getty Museum. In addition, he established and ran the analytical laboratory at the Getty Villa site, and served as co-PI on a National Science Foundation Cultural Heritage Science grant on ancient Athenian pottery. His research has focused primarily on trade and manufacture of ancient objects.
