Joshua Haislip, Senior Systems Engineer. Josh graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a B.S. in Physics and Astronomy in 2007, having discovered the most distant explosion in the universe then known. He plays leadership roles in the development and maintenance of Skynet (optical and radio), Afterglow, and the PROMPT telescopes.
Vladimir Kouprianov, Systems Engineer. Vladimir graduated from Pulkovo Observatory with a Ph.D. in Celestial Mechanics in 2014. He is an expert in astronomical image processing and analysis, and author of the APEX II software package. He also plays leadership roles in the development and maintenance of Skynet, Afterglow, and PROMPT.
