My research on Game Transfer Phenomena has reached a new phase!

It is time to move on and continue building dreams…

I was very close to find home at the University of Konstanz in Germany last year, when I was a finalist for a Marie Curie fellowship with my postdoc project, but it was not the time yet…

Dreams do not simply come true, we need to build them little by little with patience, perseverance and passion!

During the coming years, I will be at the University of Liège in Belgium with my mentor professor Frank Larøi and also follow up some already started projects with SLATE (The Centre for the Science of Learning & Technology) at the University of Bergen in Norway.

(In some years, I hope to be confident enough to talk five languages! 😉 … Learning French has been one of my dreams, but at the moment I can hardly pronounce one word!)

Thanks to all of you that in one way or another has been part of my trajectory investigating about GTP!

A special thank you goes to those that have opened the doors of your universities for me and my research about GTP!
