About me

Many years ago I started out as an aspiring game artist, specialising in animation. Since then, I have rolled into design, taught myself to program, began working as an independent researcher studying games and players, taught game development to a wide range of students, raged a lot at SoulsBorne games, and have been a very dedicated cat mom. Most recently, I am in the process of finishing my PhD dissertation on engagement in applied games, while managing the HitnRun project in the GEMH Lab.
