  • 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 for 2 years sharing an office with Sergey Fomel. I used to be a devote SU Unix follower for most of my research carrier even as a Post Doc at Stanford (SEPlib people), but I have recently seen the light and converted to Madagascar.
  • Sergey Fomel has been working at the Bureau of Economic Geology at the University of Texas at Austin since 2002 and currently has an Associate Professor appointment, jointly with the Department of Geological Sciences. He received a Ph.D. in Geophysics from Stanford University in 2001 and worked previously at the Institute of Geophysics in Novosibirsk, Russia, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. Sergey started work on Madagascar (at that time named RSF for Regularly Sampled Format) in 2003.
