Matt Gaydos is a graduate student in the Educational Psychology Learning Science program at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. He holds an undergraduate degree in psychology from Pennsylvania State University, and is currently interested in using cognitive science to better understand how videogames are educational. He also hopes to someday design games that are both fun and educational, and has worked with Filament Games, attended the GDC as an IGDA scholar, and is trying to teach himself ActionScript (emphasis on trying). He is the resident “twitch” gamer in the GLS group, having sharpened his teeth with the Halo series, and can often be found drinking coffee and eating sugar. He currently enjoys playing WoW in the guild TerrorNova, Team Fortress 2, and Halo 3.
