Dr Alok Kanojia
Dr Kanojia, known widely as 'Dr K,' is the world’s foremost expert on video game psychology.
He is Instructor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, a private psychiatrist working with e-sports professionals, and the co-founder of Healthy Gamer, an online digital mental health platform that helps gamers and parents achieve healthy video gaming habits. Dr K’s expertise is further informed by his own personal history – as someone who struggled with his own video game addiction as a teenager and young adult. He made the radical decision to escape his own habits, travelling to India and embarking on a seven-year journey to become a monk. He later returned to the US, conducted neuroscience research at Harvard Medical School, and completed his psychiatry training. He continues to teach about video game addiction at Harvard Medical school.
