Research Interest

Currently I am pursuing my PhD studies under the supervision of Prof. Girish Dalvi in the domain of game studies. My PhD thesis focuses on design elements of player experience in narrative-ridden board games. I intend to create a framework and a language to represent gameplay and analyse it for the desired player experiences.

Apart from my PhD thesis, I am interested in designing for motivations, media theories, design and behaviour change, meaning-making in interactions.
