Christina's PhD is in the area of human-computer interaction (HCI) and looks at office building automation from a socio-technical standpoint. The goal is to understand the energy saving potential of office building automation, taking into account the energy footprint of the underlying system and response of building users. For this research, Christina is using the Energy Information System at Lancaster University.
More generally, Christina is interested in research that focuses on the environmental and societal impact of technology, including algorithmic bias, persuasive design and the technology's embodied energy. She holds a BSc Cognitive Science from the University of Edinburgh and a master’s degree in HCI from Uppsala University.
