She is a senior lecturer at UNC Asheville, where she teaches in the departments of computer science, new media, and mechatronics and is a collaborative co-founder of the STEAM Studio, a 12,000 square foot making place. Reiser is the Co-Director of the SENCER Center of Innovation South. She was a visiting lecturer at Vassar College 2019-2020. Her research spans developing curricula for makers, employing user-centered design and civic-engaged learning in the classroom, and designing data materialization projects.
 
Ann McNamara is an Associate professor in the Department of Visualization at Texas A&M University. Her research focuses on the advancement of computer graphics and scientific visualization through novel approaches for optimizing an individual's experience when creating, viewing, and interacting with virtual and augmented spaces. She is the recipient of an NSF CAREER AWARD entitled \"Advancing Interaction Paradigms in Mobile Augmented Reality using Eye Tracking\". This project investigates how mobile eye tracking, which monitors where a person is looking while on the go, can be used to determine what objects in a visual scene a person is interested in, and thus might like to have annotated in their augmented reality view. Ann has long served on the ACM SIGGRAPH conference committee.
