Hi! My name is Courtney Kidd, I’m a LCSW originally from New York and currently living in Edinburgh pursuing my PhD at the University of Edinburgh in Science and Technology Innovative Studies. My interests surround affective computing in video game design, and emotional AI. I look at military, education, global and public health, as well as public policy. I consult on UX and work to make games not only more sustainable, but a positive influence on its audience. I also teach, and love to do so in a number of subject areas. When I’m not working, I’m usually waltzing around a ballroom dance floor or trying to sneak in just one more Broadway/West End play before the next due date!

Please contact me for further info any time.

I also run a news and advocacy website, Social Justice Solutions. My other works on various issues, can be found at: http://www.socialjusticesolutions.org/author/courtney/

Don’t forget to have fun!

-Courtney
