Resarch Interests: confidence and reliability in emotion recognition, uncertainty in emotion recognition, ethics of affective computing, human-computer interaction, measuring user experience

Since 2000 I work for Gdansk University of Technology, FETI, Department of Software Engineering. I initiated and I am a leader of Emotions in HCI Research Group since 2012 and I conduct research on user experience evaluation as well as Affective Tutoring Systems design. I received PhD in 2006 in computer science. As part of the scientific work undertaken after obtaining the doctoral degree, I also dealt with the methods of processing emotion data by computer applications and the methods of designing software that recognizes emotions. The research goal of the conducted work was to develop processing and design methods that would take into account the reliability of measurements of the emotional symptoms. One of the issues examined was the integration of data from various channels of observation of the emotion symptoms and from various classifiers. Research on the applicability of the emotion recognition methods, and, in particular, identification of factors determining the quality of their performance, was one of the objectives of research conducted by me in 2013-2019. One of the additional research purposes was to determine the conditions for the reliable measurements and the recognition of emotions in human-computer interaction, including the method for the selection of input channels based on defined criteria.
