I explore the intricate connections between the human body, movement, technology, and play, drawing inspiration from phenomenology and neuroscience to unravel the secrets of immersive player experiences at the intersection of body, play and technology.
Statement by Alf Inge Wang, Professor at NTNU and Founder of Kahoot
Louise Petersen Matjeka is highly intelligent and resourceful and has produced research and research publications of very high quality. She has a very high work capacity, and I was really impressed by the amount and the quality of work she was able to complete in the last year of her Ph.D. Furthermore, Miss Matjeka has an impressive capacity to learn and use various theories and discuss how these theories relate on a deep and advanced level. Further, she has proven multiple times that she is highly creative and can combine, utilize and develop technology innovatively.
In her Ph.D. Louise showed that she could work within and combine various research fields and contribute to multiple research domains such as HCI, interaction design, and game design. Matjeka’s Ph.D. opponents were highly impressed with her work both in terms of magnitude and quality. Proof of her excellent work is also shown in her winning the CHI Play best paper award and the CHI Student Game Competition.
