Mark Murnane is a senior computer engineering student at UMBC. During the Summer of 2015, he interned at Direct Dimensions Inc. where he helped construct the photogrammetry rig now used by the IRC. After being purchased from DDI along with the rig, he now develops new software for the rig and provides operational support to the researchers and clients using it. In addition, Mark is working with a resident artist in the IRC to develop embedded systems to help create interactive art installations.
In his free time, Mark works on building home automation systems and volunteering for MAGFest, a local art festival focusing on gaming and music.
