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. Since the academic year 2019/20, I am working as a visiting 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. I am also a doctoral student at the Academy where I investigate how design placebos can extend digital natives’ sense of empathy when dealing with videotelephony.
