  • Magister in Applied Computer Science (with distinction), Jagiellonian University, 2016
  • Licencjat in Computer Science, Jagiellonian University, 2014

Sławomir joined the Engineering Design Centre in October 2016 as a PhD researcher after receiving Licencjat and Magister degrees in Computer Science from Jagiellonian University, Kraków, Poland. During his studies he has undertaken multiple internships including CERN, Microsoft, European Space Agency and Institute of Nuclear Physics PAN Polish Academy of Sciences in Kraków. He was also part of the Prof. Paweł Moskal Research Group working on Monte Carlo simulation of the SABAT System for underwater detection of dangerous substances. At Cambridge, he is part of the Intelligent Interactive Systems Group working under supervision of Dr Per Ola Kristensson. Sławomir works primarily in the fields of Scientific (SciVis) and Information Visualisation (InfoVis) on the interaction design for immersive visual analytics with the help of Virtual Reality (VR) head-mounted displays (HMDs) with the main focus on Big Data exploration.

Sławomir's work at Cambridge is supported by the Cambridge European and Trinity Hall Scholarship and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) DTP.
