I'm Mitu Khandaker-Kokoris, and I'm an independent game developer (at my currently-one-woman studio The Tiniest Shark) and videogames PhD researcher (at University of Portsmouth, UK). Basically, I make and think about videogames. Most recently, I made a game called Redshirt, a satirical sci-fi social networking simulator. Yes, that's right.
I often speak on game development, entrepreneurship, games culture, and diversity issues, and I am on the Advocacy Committee for the Game Developer's Conference. I'm also a STEM/Video Games Ambassador and may be available to talk at your school/institution/event about being a game developer.
My solo studio The Tiniest Shark was named one of Develop's Top 100 Hottest UK Studios 2013, and, more recently, I was honoured to be named a BAFTA Breakthrough Brit 2013.
Also, I love space. Definitely space.
