Play is the highest form of research.

Well, I'm Noor! I'm currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Medialogy department at Aalborg University in Copenhagen. I want to build better, more fun and personalized games. I also want to teach games who to build themselves while learning from the interaction with the player. 

I'm also an entrepreneur. I founded Lynura, a company that develop mobile apps that makes life easier, more social and fun. Our first product is Menura, a mobile social app for parents to help them go out and meet other parents. 


I recently started a blog where I talk about research and other personal stuff. Check it out if you are interested.

I am currently editing a book on Procedural Content Generation with two other colleagues. Draft chapters of the book can be found at: Procedural Content Generation in Games: a textbook and an overview of current research.
