Biography

Tomasz Rudzki received his BSc and MSc degrees in Telecommunications from the Warsaw University of Technology in 2009 and 2014, respectively. He is currently studying a PhD in Electronic Engineering at the University of York, investigating the performance of spatial audio systems. Ever since high school, he was interested in audio engineering. During his undergraduate studies he started working as a live sound engineer at jazz clubs and over the years he became a mixer for some of the major Polish performers. During the period from 2008 to 2017, he was associated with the Musical Acoustics Laboratory at the Frederic Chopin University of Music in Warsaw. Before joining the AudioLab, he served as an acoustic consultant for numerous architectural design projects including concert halls and recording studios. He also worked on his immersive audio startup company – nvsonic. Tomasz actively takes part in maintaining this website.
