Dr Mitchell McEwan started as a Lecturer in Computer Games at Macquarie University in 2019, and teaches into the Bachelor of Game Design and Development. Dr McEwan was a lecturer and founding member of the Games Research and Interaction Design Lab at Queensland University of Technology and is Co-Founder and Director of TBD Game Company, which developed the iOS game Endless Runner X.
Mitchell earned his PhD from QUT with research focused on The Influence of Naturally Mapped Control Interfaces for Video Games on the Player Experience and Intuitive Interaction. Mitchell studied acting at an undergraduate level, earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Rutgers University, and also received a Master of IT in Game Design from QUT. Interested in video games and related emerging techologies, his work aims to explore new opportunities for interactivity, improve accessibility, and develop techniques to evaluate and expand the expressive and affective powers of the medium.
