Dr. Piotr Didyk

Piotr Didyk has been head of the Independent Research Group Perception, Display and Fabrication within the Cluster of Excellence since October 2014.

Short CV

Piotr Didyk is an Independent Research Group Leader at the Cluster of Excellence on ''Multimodal Computing and Interaction'' at the Saarland University and the Max Planck Institute for Informatics. Prior to this he spent two years as a postdoctoral associate at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory of MIT. He worked there in the Computer Graphics Group and in the Computational Fabrication Group under the supervision of Wojciech Matusik. He obtained his PhD from the Max Planck Institute for Informatics and the Saarland University working in the Computer Graphics Department. His work on ''perceptual display'' was supervised by Karol Myszkowski and Hans-Peter Seidel. During his studies he was a visiting student at MIT. He received his M.S. degree in Computer Science from the University of Wrocław. In 2007 he was awarded a fellowship for young computer scientists by Ministry of Science and Higher Education in Poland and Polish Academy of Science. 

Research interests

His main research focuses on new display methods, in which the efficiency and perceived quality of displayed imagery can be improved by exploiting properties of the human visual system. He also works on new algorithms for computational fabrication which account for human interaction and perception. More precisely, he is interested in human perception, new display technologies, image and video processing and fabrication.
