Cecilia Katzeff is the scientific director and a senior researcher within the Energy Design Studio at the Interactive Institute, a Swedish research institute engaged in the intersecting domains of art, technology and science. Katzeff is a doctor of psychology and has since the mid 80\'s been engaged in the psychology of human-computer interaction, both in academic and in industrial settings. She has managed projects concerned with promoting the usability of IT-systems, she has developed methods for user-centered design, and she has been actively involved in the design and usability evaluation of IT-systems in organizations. Katzeff has managed the usabality in projects developing user interfaces for clients within sectors ranging from banking and governmental to telecom. She has held numerous lectures and talks for industry emphasising the importance of usabilty and she has supervised final research projects carried out by undergraduate students.
Cecilia Katzeff\'s research currently focuses on the design of interactive digital media for influencing awareness of energy consumption. Previous research has focused adult learning in organisational contexts, including learner-centered design, designing for individual differences in learning, designing for cognitive apprenticeship, designing for playfulness in adult learning and evaluation methodologies of interactive learning media.
