Dr Francisco Queiroz


As a designer, lecturer, and researcher, I am interested in a broad range of digital and interactive design fields and application such as gamification, immersive technologies, and scientific software. My goal as a professional is to work towards bridging the gap between teaching, research, and industry, exploring the application of games and digital design and technologies into different domains, collaborating in a multidisciplinary fashion with partners within academia and beyond. Between 2020 and 2022, I was editorial manager for the Information Design Journal (IDJ).
