Elon University, Elon, North Carolina, USA
I'm an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Elon University and a Unity Certified Programmer. Prior to joining to Elon, I worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher and Lecturer in the Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University, Boston, MA. My research activities focus on 1) using serious games for behavioral improvement in several contexts, 2) enabling rapid evaluation of game design through crowdsourcing and custom visualizations, and 3) incorporating XR within serious game modules to reinforce user engagement and participation. I'm currently analyzing the player emotions in virtual reality games using a brain-computer interface. Additionally, am investigating the aspects of gamification and interaction patterns in virtual reality and mixed reality.
