Portrait of Patrick Therien

Patrick Therien

MSR Hardware Lab Manager / Principal Mechanical Engineer


I manage the Microsoft Research Hardware and Devices Lab as well as am the Principal Mechanical Engineer. I am responsible for all projects, technology selection, architecture and design coming out of the MSR Hardware Lab. We do engineering, prototype development, provide a roadmap and consulting to full and sometimes high-volume, product development.

We develop hardware devices on a wide range of applications including: small portables, wearable devices, large and micro projection systems, robotics, medical, biologically connected devices, Virtual and Augmented Reality (VR, AR), opto-mechanical systems, eye-tracking, guided and autonomous drone research and more general electro-mechanical devices.
