I'm an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Elon University and a Unity Certified Programmer/Instructor. Prior to joining 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) investigating player experience factors in video games, 2) exploring interaction patterns in virtual reality and mixed reality applications, 3) using a brain-computer interface (EEG device) to analyze the player emotions in virtual reality games, and 4) enabling rapid evaluation of game design through crowdsourcing, game analytics, and custom visualizations.
