I provide consulting and design services in the design and development of hobby games (tabletop board and card games). My research focuses on the approaches to using games and gameful experiences to present scientific concepts, and the underlying psychology and science communication practices for delivering products which can be both fun and educational. A major focus is taking existing design knowledge and experience to better develop such games to not only contain their targeted learning outcomes, but to be fun to play as well.
Current projects explore natural selection, forest biodiversity, sustainable development of the Lake Erie watershed, and more.
For general and scientific writing, from one page abstracts and letters to lengthy grant proposals, I focus on three things:
Clarity- Making your text easy to read for both scientists and lay audiences
Brevity- Keeping things concise and simple keeps page counts low and reader attention up
A well written cover letter, letter of intent, or introductory letter can make a huge difference on applications for work, student office, or stipends/grants. Letters to politicians, businesses, or other formal contacts can be taken far more seriously when tone and clarity are improved. Concisely stating your goals and interests can be challenging, and this is where my services shine.
