Gabi Woodside

Undergraduate Research Assistant Co-Op

Gabi is a third-year Honours Arts Psychology student at the University of Waterloo. She is excited to do a co-op at the HCI Games Group Lab and learn more about user experience, video game design and the emotions of players. She also is pursuing a Visual Culture minor at the University of Waterloo, as she is aiming for a career in art therapy. Therefore, she is very interested in understanding how creativity, design and leisure activities can be used to allow for self-expression and how they can affect people's emotions. She is very excited to learn more about how the digital world of video games could relate to these interests, and to expand her knowledge of technology, game design, programming, user experience, and physiological measures of psychology.
