I'm a Visiting Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Elon University. Prior 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) using serious games for behavioral improvement in several contexts, 2) enabling rapid evaluation of game design through crowdsourcing and custom visualizations, and 3) incorporating immersive technologies within serious game modules to reinforce user engagement and participation. I'm currently working on the Games User Research domain to explore the player experience in games. Additionally, am investigating the rapid playtesting and crowdsourcing aspects for enhancing the pace of game design and evaluation processes.
