I am member of the Games Institute and the HCI Games Group. Rise’s Gamification Gurus Power 100 leaderboard has ranked me one of the top Gamification leaders in the world. My main interests include gamification, and games for health and learning. My research focuses on the design of gameful applications. My background includes a M.Sc. in Computer Science and a B.Sc. in Information Systems from the Federal University of Santa Catarina, Brazil. Before coming to Canada, I worked for several years as a Software Engineer in Brazil.
