About Me

Angelika Joseph researches colonial-Indigenous architectural interaction, focusing on Native American reconciliation of colonial trauma, and the reinterpretation, or reversal, of existing power structures in the interest of Indigenous sovereignty. This research, conducted from the perspective of the colonized and rooted in the contemporary, will add a long-overdue perspective to global architectural history intended to inform future explorations into decolonization of the built environment.

Joseph’s research has been supported by the Ford Foundation Predoctoral Fellowship, Princeton University’s President’s Fellowship, Princeton School of Architecture’s Joseph Sanford Shanley ‘17 Memorial Award, and the Lassen Fellowship in Latin American Studies. Currently, Joseph is the Diversity Fellow for Princeton’s Presidential Pre-Doctoral Fellowship Program and a Resident Graduate Student in Butler College. Aside from the History and Theory of Architecture program, Joseph is also affiliated with Princeton University’s Native American and Indigenous Studies Initiative (NAISIP) and Program in Latin American Studies (PLAS).

Joseph holds a B.A. with honors in Psychology, with a minor in History, from the University of California, Davis. At UC Davis, Joseph studied decision-making through coursework in neuroeconomics, reinforcement learning, game theory, social and cultural psychology, and social cognition. Concurrently, Joseph worked as an investment analyst at the world’s largest seed-stage venture capital firm where she analyzed the behavioral-elicitation capacities of digital designs, aggregating insights and trends, to help portfolio companies and investors adjust and improve their strategies.
