Students

I’m happy to chat with motivated students who are interested in researching all aspects of learning and technology. I welcome undergraduate and masters students who want to help with research and gain experience, potential PhD students who’d like to work with me more closely, and graduates looking for post-doc opportunities.

Feel free to contact me and learn more about how to get involved in my research. Prospective students can learn more about NYU’s programs here.

Current Students

Anthony Pellicone (2012-present), University of Maryland, College of Information Studies

Tony Pellicone (apellicone@gmail.com) is a doctoral student at the University of Maryland, College of Information Studies. His research interests are in game studies, focusing on the ways that people share information, learn, and socialize in online spaces dedicated to digital games. He is also interested in game culture, and the ways that players develop identities and roles within that culture. Tony has published work examining how players utilize affinity spaces around the game Minecraft, and he is working on his dissertation where he is conducting ethnographic work to understand a phenomenon called “performance play”, where players record and present their gameplay to wide audiences via online communities such as twitch.tv.

Tony received his BA and MLS degrees from the University of Maryland.
