About Me

Hello! I am Nesli Hazal, a designer and educator focusing on the impacts and interactions of technology. I hold an MA of 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 teacher and also as a curriculum developer at the Estonian Academy of Arts. I have led several industry collaborations, and my subjects are shaped around interaction and speculative design. As of September 2020, I am also studying as a P.h.D. student at the Academy. My doctoral study concentrates on the role of off-screen digital sensorial interactions in empathy-building. Lastly, I speak multiple languages such as Turkish, French, and a little bit of Estonian.
