Research interests

I am a PhD student interested in exploring the combination of different behavioral and psychophysiological measurements in order to understand people's preferences towards the aesthetics of car exterior design.
I believe that the use of psychophysiological measurements, such as heart rate variability, electrodermal activity, and pupillometry, along with the use of different eyetracking methods (study of saliency, and global/local patterns), will shed some light on people's basic reactions, and visual exploration of different categorizations of car exterior design.
 
Keywords:  psychophysiology, pupillometry, eye movement, 

emotion, 

visual perception, 

design
