                   Martin Smith always wanted to be a scientist and through good fortune he was able to enjoy a career in geophysics. Since retiring from a small company, he has spent his time taking courses, volunteering at the local science museum, and consulting for a few clients. All of this has turned out to be much more fun than he expected. He and his wife, Terri, live in Sharon, Vermont, with four dogs and a bunch of great neighbors.
 Kurt Strovink is a graduate student in physics at the Colorado School of Mines. His research interests include optics, com- putational physics and imaging. He enjoys applied experi- mental work and hopes to remain in that field.
   Mike Roddewig received a bachelor's degree in electrical engi- neering from Michigan Technological University in 2009, a masters degree from Colorado School of Mines in 2012, and is currently a doctoral student at Montana State University in the Optical Remote Sensing Laboratory. His area of research is on optical remote sensing of the environment.
 John Scales is a Professor of Physics at the Colorado School of Mines. He is on his third or fourth career, having started in computational and mathematical physics, then delved into inverse problems in seismic wave propagation. This led to an abiding interest in random dynamical systems, ergodic theo- ry, waves in random media and quantum chaos. For the last 15 years he has built up a unique experimental center focused on sub-millimeter wave electromagnetic and acoustic wave propagation in random media—perusing both fundamental problems such as Anderson localization and the practicalities of material characterization and near-field imaging in strongly heterogeneous media. Scales has supervised a score of Ph.D. and MS students in Physics, Geophysics, Applied Mathematics and Electrical Engineering. In his spare time Scales races bicycles on the road and in cyclocross. He and Pamela have been married for 34 years and have two children currently at university.
