I am a licensed psychologist and postdoctoral researcher in psychology with master degrees in Mental Health and Child and Youth Studies.
Gamer, eager to understand the human mind and the interactions between human beings and technology to maximize the benefits.
Currently, I'm a Marie Curie COFUND Postdoctoral Research fellow in Cyberpsychology at the Psychology and Neuroscience of Cognition Research Unit at the University of Liège, researching on Game Transfer Phenomena (GTP).
Critical inquiry on the psychosocial implications of interactive media technologies has been my professional passion since undergraduate school.
Game Transfer Phenomena (GTP) (e.i., transfer of experiences from the virtual to the physical world that can manifest as altered sensorial perceptions, sensations, automatic mental processes, behaviours and actions with video game content.) is my area of research expertise.
Parallel projects I have lately involved include, the longitudinal project on eSports in Nordic Schools (eSportsNSeSportsNS) at SLATE (The Centre for the Science of Learning & Technology) at the University of Bergen in Norway.
My research has been featured in different media worldwide including Discovery News, History Channel News, BBC World Service, the New Scientist, the International Herald Tribune, the Telegraph Science, the Guardian. My research on GTP has also inspired an episode of the TV series CSI: Cyber.
I have published academically and presented at several international conferences.
