Visiting Ph.D. Student, Game Development for Human Emotions
Julia Brich is a Ph.D. student from Ulm University, Germany. In her work, she focuses on the effects that various game mechanics like highscore systems, achievements, or non-player character design have on player motivation. The goal of her thesis is to facilitate motivation-adaptive games that can change their characteristics during run time to present a continually motivating experience to players. Her work is largely interdisciplinary with aspects from both psychology research and applied computer science.
