Curriculum

I am the Head of Research at the Center for Computer Games Research,[ link:  http://game.itu.dk ] where I have worked on the aesthetics of computer games since its founding in 2003.  I am currently also director for the Games Program here at the IT University of Copenhagen. I am also Editor-in-Chief of Game Studies (http://gamestudies.org ), the oldest peer reviewed journal in the field of (surprise!) game Studies.

My current research concerns ideological, narrative, semiotic and ontological aspects of games and game communication, as well as topics such as game addiction, games and meaning, and also digital literature culture and aesthetics (what some people used to call "new media" 15-20 years ago).
