Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Miruna Doicaru (1984) is lecturer in research methods and researcher at NHTV, the Academy of Digital Entertainment (www.nhtv.nl), under the professorship of Digital Media Concepts. Her main research area is concerned with understanding narrative absorbing experiences and their determinants (media related, narrative, ultimately aiming to reveal what makes a story engaging and entertaining). Since she started working for NHTV she took her research towards the area of VR narratives, putting her focus on understanding how story-telling can be adapted to VR in order to not just attract users into the VR environment but also to keep them hooked and entertained.  Miruna is also interested in exploring more objective forms of measurement for VR narrative experiences and enjoyment. So far she worked on projects focused on VR film, VR journalism and VR and rehabilitation tool.  Contact: doicaru.m@nhtv.nl
