Dr Melissa Rogerson
I am a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in the School of Computing and Information Systems at The University of Melbourne. I currently teach undergraduate and graduate subjects in Usability Evaluation Methods and co-ordinate Masters projects in Human-Computer Interaction. My research interests include both Game studies and Human-Computer interaction.
My current research examines the use of digital tools for tabletop game play. I am also interested in how people form and enact strategies, particularly in situations where they do not have perfect information, and in how people can play physical games when they are unable to be together.
I am available to supervise Masters and PhD projects. See my full list of publications here.
