- Tariq Alkhalifah is currently a Professor of Geophysics at KAUST in Saudi Arabia. He graduated with a PhD from Colorado School of Mines, Golden, Colorado, in 1996, and served afterwards as a Post Doc at Stanford University. He used to be a devote SU Unix follower for most of his research carrier even as a Post Doc at Stanford (SEPlib people), but have recently seen the light and converted to Madagascar. https://sites.google.com/a/kaust.edu.sa/tariq/
- Luke Decker is a Master's student at the Jackson School of Geosciences, the University of Texas at Austin, studying under Professor Sergey Fomel. He holds undergraduate degrees in Physics (2008) from Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington, and Geophysics (2011) from Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington. He worked for several years as a mudlogger for King Canyon Buffalo, Inc., and his research focus is seismic diffraction imaging.
- Sergey Fomel is a Professor at the Jackson School of Geosciences, the University of Texas at Austin. He received a Ph.D. in Geophysics from Stanford University in 2001 and worked previously at the Institute of Geophysics in Russia and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Sergey started work on Madagascar (at that time named RSF for Regularly Sampled Format) in 2003. http://www.jsg.utexas.edu/researcher/sergey_fomel/
- Paul Sava is an Associate Professor of Geophysics and a member of the Center for Wave Phenomena at Colorado School of Mines. He holds an Engineering degree in Geophysics (1995) from the University of Bucharest, an M.Sc. (1998) and a Ph.D. (2004) in Geophysics from Stanford University where he was a member of the Stanford Exploration Project.
