Research

My research interests are at the intersection of game studies and HCI, looking at players' experience of games across traditional and digital media. 

Warhammer 40K

To participate, please email rogersonm@student.unimelb.edu.au 

** As an adjunct to my PhD research, I am doing an exploratory study with A/Prof Martin Gibbs, Dr Marcus Carter and Mitchell Harrop, following up on some research they did previously on Warhammer 40K. Martin and I visited Arc40K in February 2016 and talked with a few players, and are keen to talk to more of you! ** Please see the Consent Form and Plain Language Statement for Study 1 – but we are only wanting to do a single interview, so please ignore the diary element.

Interviews with boardgamers

If you are interested in participating, please contact me at rogersonm@student.unimelb.edu.au .

As part of my first research study (commenced in January-February 2015), I am looking for boardgamers who play Eurogames like Ticket to RideSettlers of Catan, or Agricola, who would be willing to participate in a small research project over about a 3-4 week period. You can download a Consent Form and Plain Language Statement , here. You must be aged over 18 to participate. (As at July 2015: there are a very few slots still available, if you are interested).
If you know someone who you think might be interested in this project, please feel free to pass on the details to them.

Interviews with game industry

If you are interested in participating, and are involved in the game industry (e.g. as designer, publisher, developer, artist), please contact me at rogersonm@student.unimelb.edu.au .

My second study is based on interviews with people in the tabletop and digital boardgame industries.
If you know someone who you think might be interested in this project, please feel free to pass on the details to them.

Recorded play sessions

To participate, Sign up here (currently scheduling 4 sessions in February-March; more to be added later)

My third study will involve getting groups of people to come to the University to play games and then participate in a short focus group session about the game(s) they have played. Both sessions will be audio and video recorded for later analysis.
