Postdoc, U. of Stuttgart


Paweł Woźniak is a doctoral student at the t2i Lab, Chalmers University of Technology. Holding an MSc diploma from Lodz University of Technology, he has been involved in research since 2010. He was introduced to Human-Computer Interaction during his stay at the Technical University of Denmark and since then he participated in a variety of projects ranging from designing for medical environments to optimising study environments. He joined Chalmers in August 2012 as an Early Stage Researcher in the DIVA EU ITN. While Paweł was educated as an engineer, he believes in the core role of interdisciplinary work and the need for a broad understanding of the world to make sense of HCI. On a regular day, you can see him running between rooms and struggling with his Swedish.
In his free time, he enjoys running, languages, high-energy physics, capoeira, cycling and winter sports. He believes a skiing holiday a year is required to survive and research conferences are mainly about running in new places.
