I am a Human Computer Interaction and Games researcher who creates and studies digital games and other playful computer-supported experiences. My focus is emotion and social connection--understanding the impact of design choices on these qualities, and getting better at building and evaluating technology that supports and enhances social and emotional experience. My lab group's work has been cited in WiredScientific American, and NPR, among other venues.
