About Me

I received M.Sc. in Automation and Robotics in 2007 from the Gdansk University of Technology. I gained corporate experience in R&D departments of ThyssenKrupp in Bremen and of Volkswagen in Wolfsburg in 2005-2009. I then received a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Telecom SudParis in 2013 under the supervision of Dr Patrick Horain. Now, I work at Multimedia Systems Department @ GUT, headed by Prof. Andrzej Czyzewski.
