  • Create benchtop demonstration systems that combine real time eye tracking and steered imaging system prototypes for system level evaluation.
  • Partner with perception scientists to develop deep scientific understanding of eye tracked steered imaging system artifacts and requirements.
  • Refine benchtop system performance to achieve minimal perceptual artifacts.
  • Develop system and component architectural options to compact solutions towards head wearable form factors in VR and AR.
  • Partner with component and subsystem teams to drive toward requirements.
  • Explore external academic and commercial collaborations to support the vision.

    Minimum Qualifications:
    • 5+ years lab experience in optics/photonics research and development prototyping.
