About Me

I finished my diploma in Psychology at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, on the topic of how virtual environment can affect people's emotions. I am currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at the School of Computer Science and Statistics, GV2 group. My research focuses around animated virtual characters, particularly how their appearance influences our perception of their behaviour. I implement methods from psychology to find ways to create more appealing, expressive virtual characters for screen-based and virtual reality platforms.
