2024 Champion: Chauveau, Philippe

Presenter Information

Philippe Chauveau


Born and raised in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where he spent most of his childhood enthralled by Mario Kart and FIFA, Philippe (Phil) Chauveau moved to the United States in 2011 to pursue higher education. After a stint in professional sports management with the International Olympic Committee, Dr. Chauveau decided that video games were more interesting to research than sports. He received his Master’s degree at the University of Cincinnati, and his Doctorate at Texas Tech University, while teaching his own class sections as a primary instructor for both universities. Here at ERAU-Prescott, Dr. Chauveau’s research and teaching center around video game storytelling and eudaimonic entertainment outcomes, with an emphasis on how paratextual content may affect video gaming experiences.
