I'm enthusiastically pursuing biology, graphic design, and teaching. Learning games lie at the center of that particular Venn diagram. As a kid, I loved playing games (still do!) and think that the current boom in accessible technology could play a big role in closing the education gap IF we do it well. As I'm sure all of you feel, I want to be part of the solution!
Cancer Avenger is the title of my first learning game (web: humbio.stanford.edu/canceravenger and iOS mobile devices: http://itunes.com/apps/canceravenger). It's for college sophomores and other interested folks tackling the content-heavy topic of cell signaling - chemical messaging between cells. I hope to target younger audiences in the future. I'm also a sci-fi enthusiast, cat-lover, cross-fitter, bike-commuter, and fiddler in a bluegrass band called Nimbleweed!
I'm a biologist designing learning games. Cancer Avenger, my first game, lets you play with cellular pathways in the context of cancer biology (web: humbio.stanford.edu/canceravenger and iOS mobile devices: http://itunes.com...).
