Expertise

My expertise is the design and use of simulation games (serious games) for  research and education. My latest projects has been the development of GO2Zero about the energy transition in municipalities and Port Constructor a game editor to develop microgames about spatial planning issues.

Further, I am an education innovator and work on implementing skills in education and new forms of teaching (such as gaming as well as the use of digital support and blended learning).
