Biography

  • Ph.D. in Engineering, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, (expected graduation date: 2020)
  • Magister in Applied Computer Science (with distinction), Jagiellonian University, 2016
  • Licencjat in Computer Science, Jagiellonian University, 2014

Sławomir joined the Engineering Design Centre at the Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, in October 2016 as a Ph.D. researcher after receiving Licencjat and Magister degrees in Computer Science from the 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 (now part of the Department of Experimental Particle Physics and Applications) 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 the supervision of Prof. Per Ola Kristensson. He was also advised by Prof. Patrick Langdon (now with Edinburgh Napier University) Sławomir works primarily in the fields of Scientific (SciVis), Industrial and Information Visualization (InfoVis) exploring interaction design for Immersive Analytics in Virtual Reality (VR) using head-mounted displays (HMDs) with the main focus on the scientific and industrial case studies.

Sławomir's work at Cambridge was supported by the grants from(1) the Cambridge European and Trinity Hall Scholarship (3 years, extended for Michaelmas 2019), (2) the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) DTP (3 years), and (3) the Cambridge Philosophical Society Research Award (Michaelmas 2019).
