Robert Lupton is interested in how to convert bits into science, i.e. in algorithms, especially as applied to optical data. To this end he is involved in a number of large-scale survey projects. He is the "Pipeline Scientist" for the LSST; algorithms lead for the "SSP" 300-night survey being carried out using Hyper-SuprimeCam on the Subaru telescope; and deeply involved in both system software and the 2-D pipeline for the new Prime Focus Spectrograph (PFS) being built to go on Subaru in 2018. In his spare time he claims to be working on a book on astronomical image processing.
