Scientifically, she has worked supporting technically twelve research programs in AUTh focused in landscape architecture, urban and rural design, as well as cultural heritage, in order to redefine urban landscape icons, develop new strategies for “tops identity”, upgrade and establish a transdisciplinary open green space syntax. Her work and papers are published in scientific journals, conference proceedings and exhibitions’ catalogues.
