Camille Cowley

Engineer and Disability advocate , Shoggoth Games

I have worked across fields of mechanical and software engineering, healthcare and mental health support, advocacy and I am disabled; both physical and neurodiverse. My research and studies have have enabled me to access fields commonly not available to someone of my background. Games have been part of my life growing up but they now play an equally important part offering an opportunity to develop more. I have a visceral knowledge in how the design of games can affect players lives. How they can help in health recovery, support and how they can be incorporated into a wellbeing plan. I have formally studied ethics, information privacy, sustainability and worked supporting health services.
