I Am Michael Papinutto
MORE ON ME

Far better an approximate answer to the right question, which is often vague, than an exact answer to the wrong question, which can always be made precise.
John Tukey

ABOUT ME

I am Michael Papinutto. I am a Ph.D. in Psychology and Informatics at the University of Fribourg Switzerland. I am co-supervised by Roberto Caldara (psychology) and by Denis Lalanne (informatics). My research is focused on multimodal investigation of human comfort in buildings.


More precisely, I am conducting research on Human comfort in buildings using HCI, visualization and statistical analysis of psychological, physiological and environmental comfort using questionnaires, physiological measurements such as eye-tracking or skin conductance and environmental measurements, respectively.


Aside of my research on human comfort, I pursue my studies of face processing that I started since my bachelor thesis.
