  1. Must be over 18 years.
  2. Will be provided a camera to go record the video sets in the participant's home.

  4. Will coordinate the collection schedule with their participants.
  5. Will ensure NDA and Intake Form is complete.
  6. Will coordinate with Aeron for pick up and delivery of equipment.

Interested in being a part of the Collection Team?  Please email with your phone number, general availability to collect, and the general area you are willing to collect.  If you have 10 potential African American or Hispanic participants ready, you will almost certainly be invited to collect. 


Why ethnicity?

The goal in all of the studies we are invited to run is to provide as diverse a sample set as possible.  We have had great success reaching participants generally not available to science or engineer teams.

What about Covid?

Our ideal scenario is to find Collection Team members who can keep the interactions to their social circle.  We will have a mandatory sanitation protocol for the collection team.

What about under 18?

Minors can be present in  the home but should not appear in the videos.
