Profile Summary

Keith B. Doyle has over 30-years of experience in the field of optomechanical engineering and the development of high performance optical systems for aerospace, astronomical, and commercial applications. Keith is considered an expert in the field where he has developed novel integrated analysis techniques to optimize system architectures and enable the development of cutting-edge optical system technology. He was named an SPIE Fellow in 2014 and was the recipient of the 2015 SPIE Technology Achievement award.

Keith is currently an Assistant Head of the Engineering Division at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. The Division works in partnership with all the other Laboratory technical divisions to design and build advanced technology systems in support of National security. Projects span the development of advanced sensors and communication systems that operate in surface, air, and space environments.

Prior to joining MIT/Lincoln Laboratory, Keith was a Vice-President of Sigmadyne, Inc. where he provided optomechanical consulting services and supported the development of the commercial software product, SigFit, which is used in four continents across the globe. Prior to joining Sigmadyne, Keith worked as a Senior Systems Engineer at Optical Research Associates as part of their engineering consulting team.

Keith enjoys sharing his work and advancing the field of optomechanical engineering through teaching, publishing, and mentoring. This includes active participation in SPIE symposia authoring technical papers, teaching short courses, and writing books. The second edition of Integrated Optomechanical Analysis was completed in 2012. He is an adjunct professor in the College of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona. Keith completed his B.S. degree in Engineering at Swarthmore College in 1988 and his Ph.D. in Engineering Mechanics with a minor in Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona in 1993.
