Brief Bio: 

Currently a PhD student at UW-Milwaukee, my focuses are on gaming and play, virtual reality, and digital texts and design. I'm also currently serving as the PA for the UWM English Department and interning with the Digital Humanities Lab here on campus.

Full Bio: 

My name is Kristopher Purzycki, a doctoral student at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee. For three years now, I’ve had the privilege of continuing my research in computer games with the Media, Cinema, and Digital Studies (MCDS) program, housed within the English department. At its broadest, my focus is on computer games, play, and digital interactivity. My upcoming dissertation, however, will focus on ecologies of interaction within digital environments, whether in VR spaces, digital art galleries, or augmented reality. This emerges from a theoretical approach grounded in ecocriticism and an interest in how people relate to place.

Aside from my studies, I also serve as the Program Assistant for the English department.
