Research Overview

Christina Bremer is a PhD student in the Socio-digital Sustainability group at Lancaster University. Funded by the Leverhulme Trust Doctoral Training Programme in Material Social Futures, she is keen to apply her knowledge of cognitive science and human-computer interaction towards sustainability and social justice, in thoughtful collaboration with others. Christina’s current research aims to understand the climate change mitigation potential of behavior change and energy efficiency technology, taking into account building baseload, rebound effects and user behavior.

More generally, Christina feels excited about research that holistically addresses the environmental and societal impact of technology, including algorithmic bias, persuasive design and the technology's embodied energy.
