Peter Gyory,
ATLAS Institute

ATLS 229

Peter Gyory received a Bachelor of Science degree from the Rochester Institute of Technology in game design and development. After graduation, he worked for the digital agency, Sapient Razorfish, as an interactive developer. He also became an avid open-source software advocate during his time at RIT and hosts all of his personal work on Github so that others can freely build upon it. While in the ATLAS CTD program, where he received an MS in 2019, Peter focused on game development, creating games and experiences that help people both laugh and learn. He is continuing his studies as an ATLAS PhD student, working with Professor Ellen Do
