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.
I am Michael Papinutto. I am a Ph.D. Student 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.Download my CV
Research implies a wide range of skills from writting to programming. I always aim at improving my skills.SEE MY WORK
