My Name is Panote Siriaraya and I am currently working as a Post Doc researcher at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering, Delft University of Technology. Currently, I am part of the Persuasive game design group and am involved with the “Next Level project” in which we are exploring the use of gamification in mental healthcare therapies.
Previously, I was employed as a Research associate at the University of Kent in the UK from where I had also received my doctorate degree. Most of my research was related to designing technology for older adults, in particular, through the use of virtual environment technology.
My broad research interest falls under the area of Human Computer Interaction. In particularly, I am interested in topics such as Gamification, Virtual Environments, understanding human behavior in virtual communities and designing technology for older adults.
