Christina Bremer

PhD student

Research Overview

Christina's PhD is in the area of human-computer interaction (HCI) and looks at building automation from a socio-technical standpoint. The goal is to understand the energy-saving potential of building automation, taking into account the energy footprint of the underlying system and the 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 is part of the Leverhulme Trust Doctoral Scholarship Programme in Material Social Futures.
