Angelika Strohmayer


Department: Northumbria School of Design

Before joining Northumbria School of Design as a Lecturer, I was a Research Officer at Swansea University’s Centre for Criminology and Criminal Justice (2018-2019) and a PhD student at Open Lab, Newcastle University (2014-2019).

I am an interdisciplinary technology researcher, working closely with third sector organisations, activists, and other stakeholders to creatively integrate digital technologies in service delivery and advocacy work. My 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. This means I aim to work collaboratively on in-the-world projects that engage people at all stages of the research process to engender change towards a more just world. I work across boundaries, bringing together disparate groups to engage in creative and digital endeavours for personal wellbeing, community engagement, and public advocacy.

Furthermore, I am dedicated to the inclusion of under- and- misrepresented voices in research, design, and academia and proactively work towards equality, diversity, and inclusion. As part of this work, I am a founding member and co-leader of, 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.
