Christine Wang, a research and development professional with nearly two decades of experience, has been appointed director of the optics and photonics group at nonprofit organization Riverside Research.
“At Riverside Research, we are doing research and working on technology at the lower technology readiness level (TRL). It can start from proof of concept, or it can be in early development, but the technology we work with still needs several stages to materialize into something workable,” Wang said in a statement released Wednesday.
She previously served as a principal member of the technical staff at Draper and managed the development of chip-scale electromagnetically-driven LiDAR mirrors, according to her LinkedIn profile.
Wang also led several programs for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency as technical director and principal investigator of an independent research and development project at Draper.
“We are excited to have Dr. Wang lead our Optics and Photonics Group within the Open Innovation Center (OIC). Her expertise will benefit the OIC, and her contributions will enable technology developed at Riverside Research to transition from the laboratory to the field,” said Steve Omick, president and CEO of Riverside Research.
