Research Summary

Michel Valstar is a researcher in Automatic Visual Understanding of Human Behaviour. This encompasses Machine Learning, Computer Vision, and a good idea of how people behave in this world.

He studies the relation between medical conditions and expressive behaviour, and what role affective computing and social signal processing can have to help diagnose, monitor, or treat these conditions. (Behaviomedics).
