I am a PhD student in Communication studies at Concordia University. I previously completed a Bachelors of Education in Primary and Junior education as well as a MA in Media studies where I evaluated escape rooms as an educational framework to discuss issues related to media literacy (you can read the thesis here).
My work has explored the questions of serious game design, intergenerational design, online disinformation, digital privacy, sharenting, Canadian partisan meme communities, and older adult mistreatment. While I am still currently studying some of these themes, my personal PhD work is focused on questions of play and disinformation. I connect research with creative practice by designing and curating player experiences related to critical research questions.
