Victor Schinazi is a Senior Lecturer (Oberassistent) in the Department of Humanities, Social and Political Science at ETH Zürich. Victor is an urban planning by training and has earned degrees in sociology, geography and neuroscience. Victor’s research combines neuroimaging and behavioural testing in order to investigate how spatial information is encoded and used to guide navigation. Much of his research relies on the development of immersive virtual environments that can mimic real world situations. Recently his work has incorporated physiological measures of stress in simulated urban and building environments.
