Mark D. Niemiec is a Life enthusiast who has found several oscillators, most notably the period 9 snacker.

He expanded on David Buckingham's still life enumeration results, generating complete lists of still lifes and pseudo still lifes up to 24 cells, as well as period 2 oscillators and pseudo oscillators up to 19 cells.

He also expanded on Buckingham's glider synthesis results, generating syntheses of many 15-cell still lifes, all pseudo still lifes up to 15 cells, many remaining period 2 oscillators of 15 - 18 cells, most period 2 pseudo oscillators up to 19 cells, and most higher-period oscillators and pseudo oscillators up to 20 cells.
