Profile Summary

Dr. Lisa Poyneer is an engineer at Lawrence Livermore National
Laboratory, specializing in signal processing for adaptive optics (AO).
She has developed several new techniques that enable high-performance
AO, including the spatially filtered wavefront sensor,
Fourier transform wavefront reconstruction and optimized-gain and
predictive Fourier wavefront control algorithms.
Lisa earned the SB and M.Eng from MIT and is a Rhodes Scholar.
She completed the Ph.D. at UC Davis concurrently with her
research position at Livermore Lab, winning the 2008 Marr Prize for
the most distinguished doctoral dissertation at the university.
