We are a team of scientists, researchers, graduate students, and undergraduate students who are dedicated to the scientific study of gambling behaviour. Our research aims to further our understanding of how gambling games impact human behaviour, physiology, and emotions. Recently, we have expanded the scope of our research to include video gaming, given the growing convergence between gaming and gambling.
We actively engage in knowledge translation practices to help propel our empirical research into policy and harm reduction interventions. The central aim of our research and knowledge translation projects is to make gambling safer for everyone.
