I work with languages, tools and development methods for efficiently creating software games and related software applications. I also have a soft spot for generative art and new technology.

RESEARCH

My main research focus is currently;

  • Web-based single-camera movment-based gaming. Developing algoritms for image processing and feedback as well as aspects of game design and game mechanics that work together to make a functional whole for movement for games for health.
  • How to design serious games to teach through entertainment. Game design and game mechanical concerns for successful serious-games. 
  • Generative approaches to the creation of assets and content in games as well as in physical products. Creative coding and automatization in the idea process. Hybrid approaches to code-based creativity and design.

TEACHING

My teaching at LiU is focused on game programing, mobile and web programing. I also teach an introductory programming and generative design course in python.
