My name is Erik Harpstead and I am a fourth-year PhD student in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. I am also a fellow of the PIER Program in Interdisciplinary Education Research in the 2011 cohort. I work with Vincent Aleven. My primary research interest is in the study of educational games. I am particularly interested in developing tools and techniques that allow researchers and designers to ask questions about their games, and use the answers to inform redesign.

If you want to know more about my work, you can find a list of my publications on my Google Scholar profile page. I keep the code repositories for most of my projects up on Github. The majority of my work so far has been done as part of the ENGAGE project. You can also download my CV.
