July 24, 2020
Lumenpulse optical engineering manager Dave Grassi's career centers around quality of light.

Optics are critical in terms of the performance of a solid-state lighting (SSL) system delivering quality of light. And about the work of optical engineering manager Dave Grassi, a colleague said, “The quality of light that stems from Dave’s optical designs is a fundamental element of Lumenpulse’s DNA. Over the past six years, his creativity and talent have resulted in world-class photometrics, award-winning beam distribution performance, and best-in-class LED luminaires.”

Grassi earned an undergraduate degree in physics from Saint Vincent College. He is another member of our 40 Under 40 Class who participates enthusiastically in continuing education. For example, Grassi presents on a recurring basis in the local Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) chapter’s Emerging Professional educational seminars.

He also goes beyond his engineering role by contributing to technical white papers and articles published by Lumenpulse. Moreover, he has become an expert in using and instructing others in the use of photometric planning and optical-simulation software platforms. Grassi has further authored several patents. His work spans applications ranging from stadiums and resorts to architectural indoor spaces. Prior to joining Lumenpulse, Grassi worked for optics manufacturer Carclo.
