Research Area: Machine Learning

I am a Research Scientist at Disney Research|Studios in Zürich, where I develop algorithms concerning human faces. Currently I’m focused on generating photo-realistic face images and recognizing facial expressions. I received my M.Sc. and Ph.D. degree at Warsaw University of Technology, where I was an assistant professor for eight years. During this time I was giving lectures in C++ programming, semantic audio-visual analysis and parallel programming. I participated in many projects concerning i.e. face recognition, 3D telepresence (LiveScan3D) and eye gaze detection. In August 2018 I started my journey with Disney as a Research Engineer. In 2019 I received a habilitation degree.
