In 2014 she started the internet platform for research in urban design The URB CLV dealing with formal/informal, public/private and top down/bottom up planning. Her continuous research on international contexts is based on “The city as a palimpsest” as she presented during TedXSkopje City 2.0. The past year she worked as an International expert and lecturer in the Urban Design and Development program at Thammasat University, Bangkok.

She understands cities as a collage of unpredictable phenomena, synthesizing the educated and non-educated, the poor and the rich, the formal and the informal, adults and children, past and future, popular and learned, top down and bottom up processes in order to achieve the maximum of architectural expression and continuous dreaming of identities.
