Research


Algebraic Gamification

August 2014 - May 2017

Missing: Gamification Research Image

The study of turning non-game material into games for a better and accelerated learning experience. By this ideology, this will allow students and abroad audience to learn algebraic concepts without the abstract and dryness that comes from a basic class-room setting. But the game, in itself, must be fun and entertaining - otherwise the gamification concept fails as the student will not be motivated to play that particular game.

Publications

Professional Affiliations


Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)

ACM Site
August 2017 - December 2018

Elected as Vice-Chair of the ACM group in Cameron University during the Fall 2017 and reelected for the Fall 2018 chapters.

As the Vice-Chair, I want to use my position to not only help our own members but also are fellow students. With this goal, I want everyone to benefit as to - what to expect in the real world and possible career choices that students might be interested in. To accomplish this goal, I will help to organize special speech events. I will have to work with employees, professors, and also - graduate students that are already in successful fields. However, this will allow the students to gain knowledge from the special events and learn about their fields as well as the importance of their fields.

My ultimate goal is to help all students abroad by providing new information as well as the importance that is related to Information Technology and Computer Science related topics.
