Michigan State University
Assistant Professor
East Lansing, MI, USA
My research examines the creative collaborative work of videogame design and development. I examine the cultural and collaborative dynamics that occur in both professional "AAA" organizations and formal and informal "independent" game development communities. My research has spanned game development companies from the United States to India. My first book, "Developer's Dilemma" will be published by MIT Press in October of 2014. I am also an active game developer, releasing "Osy," in 2011, "Against the Gradient," in 2012 and "GLITcH" in 2013. My work has been funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institute of Health (NIH).
