Gregor McEwan University of Saskatchewan

I am a PhD student under the supervision of Dr Carl Gutwin. My thesis research is about Virtual Communities in game sites. I am investigating how people in communities in online board game sites relate to each other and communicate. Previously, I was employed at National ICT Australia on the Braccetto project, which investigated Blended Spaces for distributed interaction. I also worked for four years at the Distributed Systems Technology Centre. I completed my M.Sc. in HCI at the University of Calgary in Canada and my B.Sc. at the University of Queensland in Australia.
