Staff

Staff involved in iGGi include the Supervisors of the iGGi PGRs, the iGGi Co-Investigators (i.e., academic members of staff who have specific roles within iGGi), and the iGGi Admin Team members. All of these people form part of the wider support network for iGGi PGRs.

Our 60+ supervisors draw on close links to games industry/related academia, and are conducting interdisciplinary research in areas such as:

  • Understanding player experience, games user research, and game analytics

  • Game audio and music

  • Using games and gamification to support wellbeing, learning, or social change

  • Using esports and other game data to study human behaviour and psychology

  • Interaction, user experience and learning design for games

  • Using machine learning (ML) and other forms of artificial intelligence (AI) to create interesting, fun, believable game agents

  • Augmented creativity tools that support game designers and developers, e.g. procedural content generation, AI-assisted game design and testing

  • Using ideas from game AI to improve real-world decision making beyond games
