Dr Nabajeet Barman


I am currently an Adjunct Lecturer in Applied Computer Science at Kingston University London with most of my engagement limited to supervision of final year projects for masters and some guest lectures. I am working full-time as a Senior Research Scientist at Sony Interactive Entertainment (PlayStation). Previously I was working as a Principal Researcher at Brightcove where I work primarily on optimal video encoding strategies, perceptual quality assessment and end-to-end optimization. I am also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA), UK. I received my PhD and MBA from Kingston University, London and MSc in IT from Universität Stuttgart, Germany and B.Tech in Electronics Engineering from NIT, Surat, India.

I was a full-time Lecturer in Applied Computer Science (Data Science) at Kingston University, London till Nov 2021. From 2012-2015, I worked in different capacities across various industries including Bell Labs, Stuttgart, Germany after which he joined Kingston University as a Marie Curie Fellow with MSCA ITN QoE-Net from 2015 to 2018, and a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow from 2019-2020. I am also a Board Member of the Video Quality Expert Group (VQEG) as part of the Computer Graphics Imaging (CGI) group and a member of various standardization groups such as ITU-T SG16 and MPEG, SVA, CTA, DASH-IF and UHDF. I have published in many international conferences and journals and am an active reviewer for many conferences and journals.
