Anneli Selvefors

Doktorand at Chalmers, Industrial and Materials Science, Design and Human Factors

Anneli Selvefors explores what effect product design has on our use of products and resources. She focuses on energy use in households and study people’s energy behaviour, attitudes and environmental awareness in relation to product design. PhD projects are carried out in cooperation with the industry to develop solutions enabling and encouraging people to engage in energy conservation. The main research goal is to further knowledge on how design can promote pro-environmental behaviours and to highlight how behavioural science can be addressed in the traditional product development process.
