Dr. Lesley-Ann Noel practices design through emancipatory, critical, and anti-hegemonic lenses, focusing on equity, social justice, and the experiences of people who are often excluded from design research. Dr. Noel also attempts to promote greater critical awareness among designers and design students by introducing critical theory concepts and vocabulary into the design studio and highlighting the work of designers outside of Europe and North America. She practices primarily in the areas of social innovation, education, and public health. Formerly the Associate Director of Design Thinking for Social Impact at Tulane University, she now teaches in the Department of Design Studies at North Carolina State University. Dr. Noel also is co-chair of the Pluriversal Design Special Interest Group of the Design Research Society.
