ian.brown (at) oii.ox.ac.uk
Computer Science-based research assistant is undertaking a technology transfer process within which existing e-science, model visualisation and engineering metrology software tools are integrated to produce a computing environment that is appropriate for use by those working on the chosen objects from the arts and humanities components of the project.
yean-hoon.ong (at) ucl.ac.uk
Collections-based research assistant has joined the project once the
core software tools were at a stage where they can be tested with
larger data sets. She is working with the Steering Group to organise
the formative workshop, and all interim evaluation sessions with
curators and conservators. She will organise the summative workshop
contribute to the final report and publish in appropriate professional
contexts. Mona's staff webpage is here.
m.hess (at) ucl.ac.uk
Project student will explore the usage of the developed tools and
undertake re-scanning and comparison of the objects on a periodic
basis. This work will form the basis of a PhD investigation of the
abilities of 3D colour scanning and e-science based data sharing and
visualization for the museum community.
