Amanda is a doctoral student at the Oxford Internet Institute whose research focuses on the ways in which playing video games influence how players know and think. She’s interested in exploring the ways we might create knowledge, express creativity, and/or expand our notions of identity while playing video games as part of our daily lives. Prior to pursuing her DPhil, Amanda worked as a user experience researcher. She holds an MSc in Social Science of the Internet from the Oxford Internet Institute and a BS in Arts, Technology, and the Business of Innovation from the Iovine and Young Academy at the University of Southern California. Amanda’s research is generously funded by the Oxford Internet Institute’s Shirley Scholarship.
