Dr Melissa Rogerson
I am a Lecturer in the School of Computing and Information Systems at The University of Melbourne. I currently teach undergraduate and graduate subjects in Usability Evaluation, as well as a graduate subject in Information Systems. My research interests include both Game studies and Human-Computer interaction.
I completed my PhD at The University of Melbourne (supervisors: Associate Professors Martin Gibbs and Wally Smith), in the School of Computing and Information Systems. My research investigates the hobbyist experience of modern boardgames. I am interested in what players value about boardgames and boardgame play, as well as in how they use the game during play. In July 2019, I commenced a project looking at the role of digital tools in hybrid digital boardgames.
