Her first favorite games were Day of the Tentacle and the Monkey Island series. Since then, her taste in games shifted a little more to role-playing games like World of Warcraft and car racing games or strategy games. Her research interests concern learning behavior in games, dynamic adjustments of games for learning and generally innovative technologies that enhance the learning experience in a game-based environment.
