Skip to 0 minutes and 7 seconds LISA HARRIS: So, Vanissa, can you tell us a little bit about how your PhD work is feeding into this area?

Skip to 0 minutes and 12 seconds VANISSA WANICK VIEIRA: Well, I’m doing research with advergaming design across cultures. So I’m doing a comparison between the UK and Brazil. So my work is being sponsored by the Brazilian government and non-Brazilian as well. I’m looking at how the way the cultural aspects influence the advergame design. So if we think about advertising itself, we have cultural influences. So that might also influence the design of the game. So things like colours and the way the message is presented. They’re going to influence people. So I’m looking at those aspects.
