About Mariana Afonso

đź’Ľ Past Experience

Research Scientist ( Video Algorithms) @ NetflixMariana Afonso is currently a Research Scientist ( Video Algorithms) at Netflix in San Francisco Bay Area. Marie Skłodowska-Curie Early Stage Researcher at University of Bristol from July 2015 to September 2017 (2 years 3 months) in Bristol, Reino Unido. Working within the PROVISION ITN EU project. The goal of the project is to develop perceptually optimized video compression and to produce a new generation of video compression scientists. There is a close collaboration among several leading video compression research groups.Research outputs until now include:– Review of video synthesis methods– Evaluation of optical-flow for interpolation of video frames– Development of a new video dataset composed of homogeneous dynamic and static textures– Extraction and analysis of HEVC coding statistics (presented in PCS 2016 conference paper)– Development of an adaptive resolution framework integrated with HEVC (publication at ICIP 2017)– Exploration of deep learning techniques for super-resolution and denoising of compressed video content (Video Compression Technology Grand Challenge at ICIP 2017)The project provides frequent meetings, public presentations and training activities. Teaching Assistant at University of Bristol from October 2015 to May 2016 (8 months) in Bristol, Reino Unido. Assistance in the lab classes of “Signals and Systems”, of the Electrical Engineering BS degree and “Symbols, Patterns and Signals”, of the Computer Science BS degree at the University of Bristol.Responsibilities included: preparing the lab class exercises, answering questions from students during lab classes and marking of lab reports.Teaching Assistant at Faculty of Engineering, University of Porto from February 2015 to May 2015 (4 months) in Porto e Região, Portugal. Assistance in the lab classes of ”Introduction to Telecommunications”, of the Electrical Engineering BS degree at the University of Porto. Responsibilities included: preparing practical lab classes, the problem solving classes, answering questions from students during classes and marking of lab reports.Summer Intern at GRADIANT from July 2014 to August 2014 (2 months) in Vigo, Spain. Summer Internship in Gradiant working on the detection of copy number variants in the Human genome. Teaching Assistant at Faculty of Engineering, University of Porto from February 2014 to May 2014 (4 months) in Porto e Região, Portugal. Assistance in the lab classes of ”Introduction to Telecommunications”, of the Electrical Engineering BS degree at the University of Porto. Responsibilities included: preparing practical lab classes and problem solving classes, answering questions from students during classes and marking of lab reports.Video Algorithms Intern at Netflix from June 2017 to August 2017 (3 months) in San Francisco Bay Area. Internship in the Video Algorithms team at Netflix as part of a secondment for the PROVISION ITN project. My work concerned the exploration of perceptual rate-distortion optimizations for VP9 and was under the supervision of Dr. Ioannis Katsavounidis.


🎓 Education

Mariana Afonso has a background in Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications and Signals and Systems, which she obtained from Technische Universiteit Delft. After completing her education at Technische Universiteit Delft, she held a position as a Research Engineer at thebehaviour Research Group, at University of Bristol, England. There, she worked on graduate-level research in video compression and electrical and electronic engineering. In 2019, she became a PhD candidate at the University of Bristol, and her research focuses on the study of video compression and electrical and electronic engineering because this is a growing and important field.MARIANA AFONSO'S RESEARCH BACKGROUND:Mariana Afonso's research focuses on video compression and electrical and electronic engineering. This is a growing and important field, and she is currently working on graduate-level research in this area.

đź’ˇ Technical & Interpersonal Skills

I have a Master’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Bristol, UK. I also have a degree in Audio/Video Technology from the University of São Paulo, Brazil. I have been working in the video compression and image processing fields for over 10 years now. I have experience in distributing and decoding MPEG-4 video and JPEG images, as well as in novel video compression and image processing algorithms. My main goals have been to develop perceptual optimization techniques for video compression and image decoding, as well as to expand the range of potential perceptual boundaries for video compression and image analysis. I have also worked on Single shot and continuously loop videos, and on animated GIFs.
