About Me

Hello! I am Nesli Hazal, a designer-researcher and educator focusing on the impacts and interactions the emerging technologies could deliver. I hold an MA in Interaction Design from the Estonian Academy of Arts in Tallinn and a Communications BA from the Galatasaray University in Istanbul. Currently, I work as a lecturer and also as a curriculum developer of the Interaction Design MA at the Estonian Academy of Arts. As an educator, I have led several industry collaborations, and my subjects are shaped around interaction design and speculative design. As of September 2020, I am also a doctoral student at the Academy. My doctoral study explores in which ways designing with, for and through the sensorial richness of interaction design might contribute to how empathy is produced, expressed and perceived in computer-mediated communications.
