Before joining NUS, he was a lecturer at the School of Design, Nanyang Polytechnic, where he taught and developed projects in interactive media and games. Alex has worked as an interaction designer at IDEO, London, and at Kent Ridge Digital Labs (now called I2R), Singapore. He has a M.Sc. in Computer Science (Human-Computer Interaction) from the University of Toronto. His work has been shown at SIGGRAPH’98, at the Science Museum in London, at Graphite 2004 at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, and as part of the Creative Curating Lab at the Singapore Art Show 2005.
His research interests include games studies, narrative and play, experimental gameplay, situated/ambient interaction, qualitative research methodologies for interaction design, and computer-supported cooperative work/play/learning. He teaches modules on game design, narrative and play in interactive media, and interactivity and everyday life.
