I founded my research lab, Tiltfactor, at Hunter College in 2003. It has since moved to Dartmouth College, where I have been teaching since 2008. We have attracted millions of dollars of public and private funding to study emerging and existing games, understand their impact, and publish scientific results with a highly qualified team of game and psychology experts. This unique research and design lab uses its groundbreaking design methodology to incorporate fundamental human values and psychological principles to promote learning, attitude change, and behavior change in games and playful objects. At Tiltfactor, we believe that games have the power to make a more just and equitable world.
