WHO AM I?

I am an academic, passionate about new technologies who truly believes in the huge potential of digital creative contents used with purposes other than mere entertainment. Since 2005 I combine an academic career with a professional career in the fields of Game Studies and New Media Studies.

WHAT DO I DO?

My expertise is particularly related to understanding how digital games and new media technologies can be used as media for communication and tools for engagement, motivation, and persuasion. I have international teaching experience (including teaching to multicultural groups) on these topics at Pre-BA, BA and MA levels.

WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR?

My ambition is to be part of challenging projects in which digital games or new media technologies are used to add something new or different in a meaningful and creative way.
