ABOUT

Hello! My name is Tomasz (Thomas) and I am a Polish researcher, an interactive immersive designer (with passion to video games) + prototyper specialising in XR (VR & MR). Currently (2017 -) I am a senior postdoctoral researcher at Maynooth UniversityNational Centre for Geocomputation (NCG), IRELAND. Previously (2016) I worked on VFX, animation and VR projects in startup company EvoVRLab in THE NETHERLANDSI taught 3D design and computer graphics courses in Faculty of Architecture, Design and Fine Arts, at Girne American University in CYPRUS (2014-2016). In 2014 I defended my Ph.D. thesis at University of Zielona Gora in POLAND. I was visiting scholar at Florida University of Technology in 2013 (US), and attended summer 3D graphics school (rendering) in 2012 (GERMANY). In 2010-2011 I was attending Drimagine - 3D, animation and VFX academy funded by European Union in POLAND. Before those dates (2008-2011) I was working on freelance projects including 3D visualizations and promotional movies etc.
