As an academic-turned-game-developer, I guess I'm an odd bird even by indie standards. My background is in social psychology as well as computer science. I use this background to develop highly resarch-driven character AI in C# and Unity. All my work goes into the mischief.ai middleware library, which features, among other things, lightning-fast and fully dynamic pathfinding for variable-sized characters.
