We are very happy to announce that we have appointed Dr. Federico Alvarez Igarzábal as Substitute Professor of Media & Game Studies! For the next 12 months, he will stand in for Prof. Dr. Gundolf S. Freyermuth who is taking a sabbatical to work on his research projects and next book.

Federico Alvarez is a scholar of games and play working at the intersection of aesthetics and cognitive science. He specializes in time in video games, both concerning the formal analysis of the medium and the psychology of time perception. This combination of fields has allowed him to work on national and international projects both in the humanities (game studies, media studies) and the natural sciences (psychology, neuroscience), combining theoretical and experimental approaches.
