Lecturer in Data Science, University of Bath

Lukasz obtained his PhD in Psychology at the University of Glasgow where he combined solutions from computing science, cognitive psychology and psychophysics to investigate how we use body language and voice to make emotional decisions about other people in the first few seconds of interaction. He collaborated in a range of interdisciplinary projects including work with UK Border Agency (co-funded by ESRC) on a project investigating detection of suspicious behaviour and hostility from body movement. Recently he has been working on a various ways to use mobile devices, smart wearables, and online social networks in behavioural change and user profiling, with a strong focus around social psychology, cyber-psychology, and the analysis and visualisation of ‘Big Online Behavioural Data’.
