Dr Gözel Shakeri

I am a post-doctoral research associate in Human-Computer Interaction at the Carl Ossietzky University Oldenburg. My research interests focus on Sustainable Human-Computer Interaction (HCI), using behaviour change intervention science to create interfaces that support online shoppers in purchasing sustainable products. My work has a strong experimental focus, applying multidisciplinary evidence to create rich, natural, and sustainable interaction between human and technology. I am one of Europe’s few Sustainable HCI researchers.

Previously, I was a post-doctoral research associate at the School of Computing Science, University of Glasgow. I worked on the RadioMe project. I defended my Ph.D. thesis successfully in spring 2020.

I have 17 publications (first author on 13). Citations of my research show great depth and strong relevance to the field of HCI. I target my work at top venues in my field.
