In this approach, the appropriation of urban spaces by distinct groups was investigated through empirical research resulting to models of representation, explanation and prescription. Prior to TUDelft, she completed her Master in Architecture at the Berlage Institute after earning a diploma in Architecture from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. She has taught architectural design at University of Cyprus, National University of Singapore and Delft University of Technology. She actively engages in numerous workshops both as instructor and critic and lectures worldwide
