Rik Eberhardt - Studio Manager (MIT Game Lab)
As Studio Manager for the MIT Game Lab, Rik Eberhardt spends his days playing Tetris: with people, boxes, tasklists, equipment, money, and time. When not staring at a spreadsheet trying to fit in another computer purchase, a last minute event budget, or placing undergraduate researchers on a Game Lab project, he's chipping away at spreadsheets on his DS, reproducing pixel-art in Picross and Picross 3D, or managing the ultimate spreadsheet, a game of Sid Meier's Civilization. He is also an instructor for two MIT Game Lab classes on game production and has served as a mentor and director for multiple game development projects including elude, a game about depression produced in the summer of 2010. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the College of William & Mary, is a Certified Scrum Master, a PMI Agile Certified Practitioner, and is currently working towards a Serious Games MA Certificate from Michigan State University.
Pablo Alejandro Figueroa Forero
I am an Associate Professor at Universidad de los Andes. I have a PhD in Computing Science from University of Alberta in Canada, and my areas of research are Mixed Reality and Videogame Development. Lately, I have worked to develop the video game and animation industries in Colombia. as part of a 4 year project funded by the Colombian Government and 4 local companies. An important derivative result of this effort is a 5 course specialization on Game Development with Unity for Coursera in Spanish. During my sabbatical year in 2016 I have had the opportunity to collaborate with Prof. Evan Rosenberg Suma at the Institute of Creative Technologies (USA), and Prof. Frédéric Merienne of Institute Image in France.
