Austin Harley

Research and Game Development Associate
Redwood City
I am a runner, explorer, researcher, designer, and someone who loves playing games. I wear a lot of hats, and they generally fit well. My particular focus in work and design is conducting human centered research, combining it with relevant academic research, and translating that into fun and effective game design to improve health, self-efficacy, knowledge, and awareness.

I believe games are powerful tools for change, especially when you get away from focusing on didactic teaching and text, and focus on changing behavior and attitudes through fun game play.

I'm interested in a large number of areas of social impact, but of late have been focused on cancer, autism, education, sexual health, and climate change.

Find me on twitter for extra fun! @tikithehutt
