What types of games have you designed or plan to design?

I have put together card games and board games in the past, and am currently learning some basic computer programming to begin to build prototypes of systems. I have a growing interest in the psychology of games, of human-computer interface, and of emergent systems and genetic algorithms. In my spare time I come up with mechanics and systems and do probability analysis.

What is your favorite game?

Is it too cliche to say Settlers of Catan? I play in and run role-playing games and have some tabletop wargames figures I've painted. I've tried out all sorts of games, but I have been too busy recently to play regularly.

Introduction

I'm in my senior year of a Physics degree, applying for graduate school this fall to pursue a Ph.D in materials science. I love studying interactive systems and game design has always been a hobby of mine, in the background.
