I am the Coordinator of the 3-year Horizon 2020 project ARIA-VALUSPA, which has the aim to build the next generation virtual human technology. I am a co-investigator on the MindTech project, where I lead the research into automatic detection of depression, ADHD, and ASD. This research is carried out by PhD students Kirsty Smith and Shashank Jaiswal. Apart from these official projects, I maintain a fairly large number of databases, both for iBUG and for SSPNet. Have a look to see if there's any data that may be of interest to you.


In 2010 and 2011 I was involved in the EmoPAIN project that has as a goal to recognise pain in lower-back pain patients, and find out how it relates to emotion. From 2009 till 2011 I was involved in the SSPNet network of excellence for Social Signal Processing. From March 2008 until December 2010 I worked on the European FP7 SEMAINE project.
