Matthew LeeHillman Scholar in Nursing Innovation & Co ChairUniversity of Pennsylvania & IGDA Serious Games SIG

As one of the pioneers of network culture research, an early explorer of Virtual Reality, and a longtime community advocate, Matthew Lee is passionate about using the power of games to change the world and improve people's lives. Currently, he serves as Chair of the IGDA Serious Games SIG, which works to promote inter-disciplinary collaboration, connect serious game communities around the world through organizing networking events and meetups, and advocate for greater awareness about serious games in the general game education curriculum. As a nurse-designer, game developer, and long-time community builder, he is passionate about the need to not only bridge the gaps in understanding that make designing great games hard, but the need to bring people together so that new ideas can be explored. Outside the IGDA, he consults on serious games projects for the healthcare industry, works on integrating design and innovation curricula into healthcare education, and designs games and environments that promote mental and physical well-being.
