About the Speaker:
Michelle is a postdoctoral fellow working in the Energy Cultures 2 project at the Centre for Sustainability. She is originally from Perth in Scotland and completed her PhD in Human Computer Interaction from the University of Madeira, Portugal in 2014. Her research interests lie in understanding and influencing energy choices and behaviours. Currently she is leading two different work streams related to transportation: how drivers respond to smart phone efficiency feedback and whether being an efficient driver forms part of the ‘ideal’ to which New Zealanders aspire and any motivational factors that can encourage this.
Michelle’s main academic background is in psychology, however she also has experience in computer science and interaction design and feels the best way to tackle some of the current issues in sustainability is through a multi-disciplinary approach.
