Me, briefly

“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” — Dr. Seuss

I am an Assistant Professor and run the HCI Games Group in the Faculty of Business and Information Technology at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT). Before that I worked as a postdoctoral associate researcher in the interaction lab of the University of Saskatchewan in Canada on affective computing in games and player experience evaluation. I have a Ph.D. in game development and love to work in human-computer interaction and game design research.

Professional memberships I have include the ACM SIGCHI, the IEEE Task Force on Player Satisfaction Modeling, the IEEE Game Engineering Special Interest Group. You can find me on and Twitter.
