Master's Student in Games User Research, Digital Wizard
Naeem Moosajee recently obtained his Bachelors in IT from the UOIT Game Development & Entrepreneurship program. He is currently pursuing his Masters in Computer Science co-supervised by Dr. Mirza-Babaei from UOIT and Dr. Nacke from University of Waterloo, where his focus is on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Games User Research (GUR). This past summer he took part in an internship as a game designer and user researcher working on Book Brawl, a game for the Ubisoft Academia competition. Naeem was selected as one of the 2015 IGDA Scholars where he received an all access pass to GDC, studio tours, VIP Q&A seminars and luncheons. He has always appreciated game design, but he loves conducting experiments testing and improving games- almost like a game scientist! He is also an adrenaline junkie and explorer that enjoys sky/cliff/scuba/anything diving and travelling!
