Nadia is an architectural theorist, researcher and educator concerned with ethical practices in response to socio-spatial inequalities and environmental emergencies. Her approach to 'space' as an ever-changing, often unbalanced system of social changes, political negotiations and architectural propositions is positioned at the cross-boundary between architecture and social science. In the department, she leads the Architectural Theory strand and she is Athena SWAN co-lead for Architecture, committing to educational practices that are inclusive, progressive and socially and environmentally just. Consistently with this personal trajectory, she has more recently engaged with feminist pedagogies and issues around decolonising architectural education and research.

Angelika is an interdisciplinary technology researcher. Her research is inspired by feminist participatory action research, research through design, and creative practice, and lies at the intersection of practice-led and theoretical research surrounding issues of feminist and social justice-oriented HCI. She works collaboratively on in-the-world projects that engage people at all stages of the research process to engender change towards more just worlds, and she works across boundaries, bringing together disparate groups to engage in creative and digital endeavours for personal wellbeing, community engagement, and public advocacy. She is a founding member and co-leader of fempower.tech, a feminist technology collecting aiming to raise awareness of, and improve experiences by people who are made marginal in HCI and technology research more widely.
