As a student, Abi’s research interests include risk and resilience intervention programs, post-traumatic stress disorder and the future directions of psychosis treatment.
Robyn McMillan is working on the BeGOOD flagship project: Citizens: EIE. She completed her degree in MA Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh and recently completed her BA in Game Design and Production Management at the University of Abertay. Previously, she has worked on various projects which have emphasised the educational and ethical aspects of games. Her research interests focus on the medium of games and their ability to present ethical challenges. Robyn is delighted by the opportunity to utilize this relationship between games and ethics to provide a strong foundation for evaluating moral attitudes.
