My research focuses on game based learning, human-computer interaction and user experience. During my visit at H-STAR I am working on the framework for understanding the elements of educational exergames. Educational exergames combine gameplay elements from learning games (cognitively challenging games) and exergames (physically challenging games). This work is part of the FINNABLE 2020 project, in which my research team studies and develops game solutions that increase physical activity in classrooms without interfering the objectives of the curriculum. A particular research interest is exploring ways to utilize mobile phones and tablets as exergame controllers.
