Games User Research roles can vary depending on the size of your team, the studio, how your team interacts with the stakeholders, your seniority, and more. In this episode we are chatting a bit about what a day in the life actually looks like as a games user researcher working at Ubisoft Montreal with Tristan Carreiro-Blanc & Gabrielle Mourra. We'll discuss what it is like to work with game designers to plan a piece of research and what those tests can look like day to day. So, if you've ever wondered what it is like to be an embedded games user researcher this one is for you!


Since an early age, Tristan has always been drawn to video games and the appeal they have on different people. As an embedded user researcher at Ubisoft Montreal, he leverages the skills acquired during his studies in psychology to conduct research for video game productions. By collaborating and providing actionable insights to the design teams, he intends to leave his mark on the development of the games he works on.

Gabrielle is a User Researcher at Ubisoft Montreal, with an academic background in Psychology and Marketing. She was born and raised in Haiti, a country that has suffered much political and economic turmoil. This led her to strive to understand what makes people tick and how they create the perception of the world around them. Since joining Ubisoft she has used her knowledge of human psychology and research methods to understand how players interact with games and help production teams give players the intended experience while playing.
