At the centre of her research activity is the symbolic and narrative dimension of architecture. In recent years she studied the theme of total institutions under the aspect of the relationship between forms of granting and denial of rights and their location within spatially defined spatial shapes and limits. She is a consultant, for the University of Trieste, for the Regeneration project in an historical and cultural key of the former Gorizia Psychiatric Hospital located on the Italy-Slovenia border.
