Who am I - professionally

This note last modified March 30, 2023

At the moment I research games at Northeastern university under the wonderful Seth Cooper.

My interests primarily lie in educational games, with a specific focus on games that ask their players to reflect on themselves and the world around them — touching on concepts in critical thinking and philosophy. Summed up: why read about the trolley problem, when you can instead play through it yourself? These interests arose from a course I taught in undergraduate where I used games like The Stanley Parable, The Talos Principle, and The Witness to teach philosophy.

I also run the Game Philosophy Network’s unofficial discord for game academics.
