Taimoor Tariq

I am a second-year PhD student in Informatics at the Università della Svizzera italiana, Switzerland, advised by Professor Piotr Didyk at the Perception, Display and Fabrication Group. I am working on the ERC Starting Grant supported PERDY project. I received my M.S. degree from KAIST, South Korea, and B.S. degree from NUST-SEECS, Pakistan.

I am broadly interested in various aspects of cognitive psychology; specifically the intersection of vision science, computational imaging and virtual reality (VR). My current work is focused on investigating and exploiting the limitations of human visual perception to develop graphics algorithms for real- time VR environments (e.g HMDs).
