She is a writer whose work has been supported by scholarships, fellowships and grants, such as the Alexander S. Onassis Foundation, the Pratt Institute, the Stanley Seeger Visiting Fellowship in Research of Princeton University, and the Kingston University London. She has edited books, among them Revelation for the Greek Cultural Olympiad in 2004. She is an educator – she has previously taught at the School of Architecture, National Technical University of Athens and at the University of Thessaly in Volos, Greece.
