Gender Female

Location United States
Introduction I received my Ph.D. from Stanford University, with a focus on applying human social behavior to the design of digital characters. Since then, I’ve worked in both industry and research venues to create and evaluate interfaces that enhance the player (or user) experience using social and emotional qualities. These days, I am an Associate Professor at NYU-Poly in New York City, and also have an ongoing affiliation with the ITU Copenhagen’s Center for Computer Games Research. My current research interests include emotion and gesture in games, supple interactions, design of game characters, and game usability.
