Brief synopsis:

Serious games are a relatively new way of creating experiential learning and research tools that are able to simulate real-life contexts. I am working with a colleague Russell Richards (Business School) to develop a serious game called "Spillover" that will be a multiplayer simulation of the systems associated with the spill over of a new zoonotic pathogen. The game offers an opportunity to explore the process that key stakeholders use to make complex decisions under uncertainty. The project involves working with a colleague from the School of Psychology who is an organisation psychologist.
