Susan Farnand is a research scientist at the Rochester Institute of Technology. She graduated from Cornell University with a BS in Engineering and from the Rochester Institute of Technology’s with a Masters in Imaging Science. She worked for many years at Eastman Kodak Company on assignments involving printing and imaging science, before leaving to join RIT. With a focus on human color vision and perception, she is involved with investigations into fine art reproduction, visual attention, 3D printing, printer performance evaluation and various aspects of image quality assessment. She is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Imaging Science and Technology and also participates in International Standards efforts and the IS&T professional society.
