Angela Kreutz is a Lecturer in Architecture at Deakin University, Australia. She received her architectural training from the University of Stuttgart, Germany, and completed her PhD studies with the Aboriginal Environments Research Centre at The University of Queensland, Australia. Angela has worked as a researcher for the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute, as a consultant for the Department of Communities, Queensland Government, and has directed a collection of short films on the childhood and lives of Aboriginal Elders. Her interdisciplinary research within the field of Children and the Environment lies between architecture, anthropology and environmental psychology. Angela has researched, collaborated, and consulted with children from across the globe, including Australia, Europe and the United States.

Her most recent book is Children and the Environment in an Australian Indigenous Community (Routledge, 2015).
