Michal Frackowiak


Michal Frackowiak is doing a PhD in Psychology at University of Lausanne in Switzerland. He is visiting Ghent University (imec-mict) as part of the Mobi.Doc fellowship from the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF). He holds a Bachelor degree in English Literature with Psychology and a Master degree in Social Psychology, both awarded by University of Surrey (United Kindgom).


Michal's research oscillates around co-present mobile phone use in interactions (phubbing) between intimate partners and in family relationships. His research involves novel theoretical and methodological developments that aid understanding of the psychological processes that unfold in real-time. In his studies, he applies advanced statistical analysis that accommodates complex experimental and intensive repeated measures designs.


Michal delivers workshops to Bachelor students in statistics at University of Lausanne. He develops workshop exercises in the second year course, focusing on multivariate statistics. He also oversees Master theses and supports the students in the write-up process.
