We had a blast during our 4th GEMH session featuring the wonderful Dr. Rachel Kowert.
Rachel Kowert is a research psychologist, the Research Director of Take This, and host of her own Youtube channel Psychgeist. She has published a variety of books and scientific articles relating to the psychology of games and the relationship between games and mental health.
In this Session, Dr. Kowert gave a short talk about her journey from academia to public-facing advocacy work around games and how each area of her career has informed the next. Following this, we talked with her about escaping the ivory tower and sharing scientific knowledge about games with a broader audience.
