Quality screen time: Leveraging computational displays for spatial computing, Douglas Lanman, Facebook Reality Labs (United States)

Douglas Lanman is the director of Display Systems Research at Facebook Reality Labs, where he leads investigations into advanced display and imaging technologies for augmented and virtual reality. His prior research has focused on head-mounted displays, glasses-free 3D displays, light-field cameras, and active illumination for 3D reconstruction and interaction. He received a BS in Applied Physics with Honors from Caltech in 2002 and his MS and PhD in Electrical Engineering from Brown University in 2006 and 2010, respectively. He was a senior research scientist at NVIDIA Research from 2012 to 2014, a postdoctoral associate at the MIT Media Lab from 2010 to 2012, and an assistant research staff member at MIT Lincoln Laboratory from 2002 to 2005. His most recent work has focused on developing the Oculus Half Dome: an eye-tracked, wide-field-of-view varifocal HMD with AI-driven rendering.
