December 2015

In July of this year, I took a Full Professor position at the University of Santa Cruz, in the Computational Media Department, where I'm a core faculty member of the Center for Games and Playable Media. I'm currently building a research team at this lovely campus, which is amidst redwoods overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and less than an hour from Silicon Valley.

Last year I was on sabbatical as a Lenore Annenberg and Wallis Annenberg Fellow in Communication at Stanford University's Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences. That gave me precious time to finish my book on games and emotion, called How Games Move Us, which will be coming out from MIT Press in March of 2016.
