During the Gabii Goes Digital Project, Rachel Opitz was a researcher at CAST at The University of Arkansas. She is now an Assistant Professor at the University of South Florida. Her research interests include digital applications in archaeology, laserscanning and hyperspectral survey, and rural landscapes outside the ploughzone. She has been involved in fieldwork in Italy since 2003 and has been helping manage the Gabii Project's survey and digital data since 2009.
Nicola Terrenato is Professor of Classical Archaeology at the University of Michigan and the director of the Gabii Project. His research focuses on the Roman Republic, and his interests include the development of urbanism and the expansion of Roman influence in Italy.

Elizabeth has been involved in fieldwork at Gabii since the summer of 2008. She worked as a staff member on the core sampling project in 2008 and in subsequent seasons has served as a staff member on the topography team. Her primary research interests focus on the cultural and physical landscapes of Italy in the first millennium BCE, and the nature of Roman interactions with the other inhabitants of the Italian peninsula in this period. She is also interested in GIS and digital mapping, photogrammetry, 3D modeling of archaeological sites and features, and the integration of digital technologies in the field of Classics. She is currently a Affiliate Assistant Professor of Art at the University of Dallas Rome Program.
Matt earned a B.A. in Classical Studies and a B.S. in Math and Physics from the University of Arkansas in 2010. In 2012 he received an M.A. in Classics from the University of Kansas, where he wrote a Master's thesis on motion and the built environment of Pompeii. Matt participated in the American Academy in Rome's Summer Program in Archaeology and excavated in Pompeii with the Pompeii Archaeological Research Project: Porta Stabia in 2012. He was also a member of the topography/topology team with the Gabii Project (2013) near Rome. Other recent work includes participation in the University of Arkansas' Digital Pompeii Project and the analysis of ancient karez water systems in Afghanistan using satellite imagery with the Kansas Geological Survey. He is now a PhD candidate at the University of Michigan.
During the Gabii Goes Digital Project, Tyler Johnson was an M.A. candidate in the Cultural Studies program at the University of Arkansas, where he received a B.A. in classical studies and history in 2012. His research interests include classical archaeology, classical languages, daily life in the ancient world, and spatial cognition. He is now a PhD candidate at the University of Michigan.
During the Gabii Goes Digital Project, Jessica Nowlin was a doctoral candidate in archaeology at Brown University, and a fellow at the American Academy in Rome. Her research interests include domestic and funerary contexts in Orientalizing Italy. She has been involved with the Gabii Project since 2009, contributing to the project's image-based modeling efforts. She is now with the Center for Archaeological Research at the University of Texas - San Antonio.
