New Fine Fellows

We can't wait to meet our new class of Fine Fellows to arrive on November 10th. With a no-strings-attached approach, participants in this program have the freedom to discover new and useful ways to use GigaPan technology that those outside their field might never consider. We will equip and train renowned leaders in a variety of fields to use the GigaPan system. These scientists will then be set loose to bring their own scientific, critical and creative eyes to bear, applying the technology to their field of specialization.

To see how some of our fellows have put their cameras to us, check out these profiles:

Christopher Davis
, a PhD student in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Illinois at Chicago, worked with local archaeology students in Brazil as he tries to unlock the mysteries held in ancient archaeoastronomical rock art in Brazil's Amazonian Monte Alegre hills. Chris will return this year to present his work and lead a workshop.

Matt Lamanna
, is the Assistant Curator of Vertebrate Paleontology and lead dinosaur paleontologist at Carnegie Museum of Natural History. He has used his GigaPan to capture a fossil excavation in the Changma Basin of northwestern Gansu Province, China.
