My research focuses on using games in medical education. Students are at the beginning of their career and have a lot to learn. Emergency medicine is a vital branch of medicine that leaves little room for trial-and-error learning. Simulation and games offer a safe practice environment. However, it is important that students are supported in the right ways while using these learning environments. Too little is known on how to translate instructional support to game environments. That is what I am working on!
