Rafal Mantiuk

Rafal Mantiuk is a senior lecturer at the Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge (UK). He received his PhD from the Max-Planck-Institute for Computer Science (2006, Germany), was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of British Columbia (Canada) and a lecturer at Bangor University (UK). He has published numerous journal and conference papers presented at ACM SIGGRAPH, Eurographics, CVPR and SPIE HVEI conferences, has been awarded several patents and was recognized by the Heinz Billing Award (2006). He made contributions to the field of high dynamic range imaging in the areas of video compression, tone-mapping and quality assessment. Rafal Mantiuk investigates how the knowledge of the human visual system and perception can be incorporated within computer graphics and imaging algorithms. His recent interests focus on designing imaging algorithms that adapt to human visual performance and viewing conditions in order to deliver the best images given limited resources, such as bandwidth, computation time or display contrast.
