She has published and presented her work in various symposiums and conferences and organised collage workshops.

Relating to the SPACEX Project, she is interested in visiting the Royal College of Art in London focusing on how training and education in art and culture can respond to conflict through audience participation and co-production, looking into how it can provide the space to reflect and develop new understandings and methodologies.
