She graduated with an MFA in 2006. 2008 she completed her Masters at the Interactive Telecommunication Program at TISCH School of the arts at NYU and became Digital Art Fellow at Umeå University in Sweden. 2009 she founded the feminist hackerspace Miss Baltazar’s Laboratory in Vienna, encouraging technology that is developed from a female perspective. In 2014 she finished her PhD with the title ‘Feminist Hackerspaces. A Research on Feminist Space Collectives in Open Culture’ at the Vienna University of Technology. October until June 2015 she held a part-time Post-Doc position at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna, co-organizing the Open Hardware Summit Europe and co-editing the publication ‘Openism. Conversations on Open Hardware’. Since March 2015 Stefanie is part of a research group at the University of Michigan (School of Information). 2016 to 2017 she worked in the PEEK project ‘Data Publics’, initiated by Prof. Peter Mörtenböck. Currently she is involved in RIAT (Research Institute for Art and Technology) and heading Mz* Baltazar’s Laboratory (feminist hackerspace and artist collective).
