About the ER3D Group

The ER3D Group is a collaborative partnership of three individuals with a shared passion for engineering and research. Formed by colleagues from very unique backgrounds, the ER3D group strives to push the boundaries for what is possible on common computing hardware with common imaging formats.

Scott Lozanoff Ph.D.

Dr. Scott Lozanoff is Professor and Chair of the Department of Anatomy, Biochemistry & Physiology at the University of Hawaii School of Medicine. He received a PhD in Anatomy at the Ohio State University in 1984 and pursued postdoctoral research in Dr. Virginia Diewert’s lab, Department of Orthodontics, University of British Columbia from 1984-1988. He was Assistant/Associate Professor in the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology and Adjunct in Oral Biology, University of Saskatchewan (1988-1996) and relocated to the University of Hawaii where he has been Chair of the Department since 1998. Initially, his work concentrated on the role of the cranial base in the development of Class III malocclusion (midfacial hypoplasia). Utilizing both human orthodontic patients as well as experimental animal models, he showed that the sphenoethmoidal region is critical for establishing the anterior growth trajectory for the midface. He successfully developed software for the purpose of quantifying altered craniofacial growth patterns in human Class III patients as well as experimental animals resulting in the commercialization of an ease-of-use computer modeling package that continues to be marketed nationally and internationally. Subsequent work focused on the role of sine oculis 2 in directing mesodermal morphogenesis in craniofacial and renal primorida. Most recently, attention has moved back to craniofacial imaging utilizing CBCT imaging modalities. This work includes commercialization of new imaging software (ER3D, espressoray.com) for the purpose of providing low cost biological imaging software for mobile electronic devices. His research received funding from a variety of sources including MRC (CIHR), NSERC, NIH, AHA, HCF and DHHS. He served on the MRC Dental Sciences Review Committee and he is a Fellow of the American Association of Anatomists and Fellow of the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science.

Michael L. Farrell MSc

Mike is an independent developer with over eight years experience developing games and other software on the Unix and Mac platforms. He is an expert in the field of graphical development, data visualization, GPU computing, and video game development. Mike was formally trained in computer science and modernized software engineering practices with a further specialization in C++, STL, and UNIX/LINUX systems. Mike has several existing products in the mobile and desktop computing space. His research areas of interest include programmable hardware accelerated graphics applications (GPU/GPGPU), advanced CG shading and lighting techniques, and geometric surface (mesh) manipulation algorithms. His main focus is developing up to date, software tools for the Mac, iPhone and iPad platforms.

James L. Farrell Ph.D.

James L. Farrell MS, UCLA; PhD, U of MD, ION Fellow, IEEE-LSM, Prof. engineer (MD). Experience includes teaching at Marquette and UCLA, two years each at Honeywell and Bendix + 31 years at Westinghouse in design/simulation/validation for modern estimation in navigation and tracking. He is author of INTEGRATED AIRCRAFT NAVIGATION (Academic Press, 1976; in paperback after five hard-cover printings), and GNSS AIDED NAVIGATION AND TRACKING (2007) as well as chapters in books edited by C.T.Leondes and Cary Spitzer. A former columnist for WASHINGTON TECHNOLOGY, he has written over 80 journal and conference manuscripts. Active in RTCA (Washington D.C.) for years, he served as co-chair of FDI Working Group of SC-159 for GPS Integrity. Tutorials include those sponsored by IEEE PLANS, AES, ION Conferences, on University campus and industry sites. Through VIGIL Inc. (Severna Park MD) he continues teaching while consulting for private industry, DOD, and University research.
