Bio: Michiel Spapé is a senior researcher and Docent in Cognitive Neuroscience whose research centres on the interface between perception and action, as a psychologist might say, or human-computer interaction, as a computer scientist would. Originally trained in Leiden (NL, PhD) as a cognitive psychologist, he held a research fellowship in Nottingham (UK), was postdoc at the Helsinki Institute for Information Technology HIIT (mainly located at Aalto), a Psychology lecturer in Liverpool (UK), and is now back as a Helsinki University senior researcher. He has about 60 peer-reviewed publications in Psychology and HCI-related areas with subjects as diverse as attention and memory, motor control, action perception, emotion and decision-making, touch and mediated interaction. These topics he typically approaches using a combination of interaction technologies (kinesthetics, virtual reality, haptics) and bio-psychological measures (EEG, EMG, EDA, fNIRS), which has generally meant that he is either seen as the computer scientist amongst psychologists or the psychologist amongst computer scientists.
