Benjamin Buttlar

I'm a Psychology Master Student out of Trier Germany. I attend for an internship at the University of Saskatchewan. My supervisor is Associate Professor Regan Mandryk and we are looking into Social Exclusion in Videogame Environments. The research at the HCI-Lab is supposed to be used for my masterthesis.
