Welcome to the design & research website of Nathan Prestopnik.
I earned my Ph.D. in Information Science and Technology at Syracuse University's School of Information Studies in April 2013. I also hold dual bachelor degrees in film production and history (focusing especially on military history), an M.S. in New Media, and an M.Phil. in Information Science.
Currently, I am working on a 2D adventure game, Arena, to facilitate second language vocabulary comprehension. I'm also working with my students on a new project exploring virtual reality (VR) environments in support of personal information management (PIM) tasks.
Before embarking on an academic career, I was an interactive developer and user experience designer in Los Angeles, CA, Clifton Park, NY, and Syracuse, NY.
