A Falmouth University lecturer has been named as one of leading women in the UK games industry.

Tanya Krzywinska, professor of digital games at Falmouth, has been listed in MCV’s Top 100 Women in Games.

She fought off tough competition to make the list, which received over 400 entrants and celebrates women working in the UK games industry.

Krzywinska says she was surprised to see her name listed: “I didn’t know about this until I saw it on a friend’s Facebook feed,” she explained.

“An anonymous group of games professionals drew up the list and it’s really great to see some games researchers and academics on it as well as women working directly and commercially within games development.”

Krzywinska is a pioneer of game studies and president of the Digital Games Research Association. She has extensive experience of collaborating with the games industry and developing academic games courses and leads the BA(Hons) Digital Games, BSc(Hons) Computing for Games degrees  as well as supervising the Games PhDs.

MCV will profile each of the Top 100 in its issue released on Friday, January 30. The Top 100 are also invited to a special Women of the Year Awards, to be held later next month.

MCV is the leading trade news and community site for all professionals working within the UK and international video games market.
