Academic Background

Michal received his MSc in Telecommunications at the University of Science and Technology (AGH) in Krakow in 2003. That year he joined the School of Computing Sciences (CMP) at the University of East Anglia and began a PhD titled “Wireless capsule endoscopy video analysis”. He has worked as a research assistant on a research project sponsored by Buhler Sortex and later on the EPSRC grant titled “Illuminating Colour Constancy: From Physics to Photography”. In 2014, he became an Independent Research Fellow and in 2016, a Lecturer. Since 2020, he has been an Associate Professor in Computer Science at CMP, UEA.


Michal has been involved in researching areas of colour science, physics based vision, environmental monitoring, medical imaging and machine learning. Recently, he has been involved in several ongoing projects, links to which can be found below:

EVERYFISH - Digital Transition of Catch Monitoring in European Fisheries (Horizon Europe)

Colour Imaging Pipeline for Orchard Aerial Surveys

SMARTFISH - Innovation for Sustainable Fisheries (Horizon 2020)

JellyMonitor: developing a jellyfish early warning system for coastal power stations
