Adrian Reetz University of Waterloo

I was a Ph.D. student from 2008-2015, working under the supervision of Dr. Carl Gutwin. My research interests are interaction techniques and their evaluation, cognitive psychology and its influence on human performance, and how gamification can motivate people to alleviate stress. I am currently working as a post-doctoral research-fellow at the University of Waterloo.
