Experienced Opto-Electrical Engineer with a decade of working experience creating a variety of different products and test systems. Diverse background enabling both high-level view and execution of complete product development processes including: project conception, planning, design, prototyping, automated testing, failure analysis, certification, documentation, manufacturing logistics and product release. Work/Research Experience

Jaunt VR - San Mateo, CA

Senior Camera Systems Engineer (6/17 – current)

Key technical member in the design of an advanced next generation 3600 stereo vision Virtual Reality (VR) camera system. Conceptualized and prepared manufacturing and testing processes, including wide field of view lens to sensor active alignment requirements. Characterized 3D depth camera systems for Augmented Reality scene capture.

• Knowledge of Imatest Software • RGB + Depth Camera System Characterization

• Augmented Reality (AR) • Design for Manufacture (DFM) Analysis Camera Test Engineer (8/15 – 6/17)

Organized and led full bring-up at local Contract Manufacturer (CM) factory for assembly & testing of Jaunt ONE © premier 360 degree stereo vision Virtual Reality (VR) camera system. Work included factory process flow design, assembly and test training, quality assurance (QA), equipment calibrations, test design, data management, failure analysis (FA), material management, negotiations with CM, logistics and regulatory compliance. Camera Tests included: Printed Circuit Board Assembly (PCBA) functional testing, dark test, LVDS signal integrity test, flat field light test, color calibration, spectral frequency response (SFR), lens distortion calibration and camera module burn-in testing. All test results and images were automatically stored to an Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud storage.
