I joined the Welsh School of Architecture as a lecturer in Architecture in January 2019.

I am an architect by training and practice since 2003, a researcher in design problematics of heritage management since 2010, and an educator of architectural history, theory and design since 2013.

I hold a Diploma in Architectural Design and Engineering and an MSc in Architectural Design, Space and Culture, from the National Technical University of Athens. I also have a doctoral degree (PhD) in design aspects of critical engagement with archaeological heritage from the University of Edinburgh. My research is interdisciplinary and brings theories and methods from cognitive studies in architectural design. 

I am  a member of the Technical Chamber of Greece and of the Association of Critical Heritage Studies, and have collaborated with various cultural institutions (AOC Archaeology-Group, Northlight-Heritage, Kelvingrove Museum and Arts Gallery, Museum of Asian Arts Corfu) for research purposes. I am currently leading BSc Year1 programme, teach theory and design across various levels of WSA programmes, and supervise doctoral students who investigate heritage design-management.  








Dimitra is BSc1 Chair and leader of Year 1 Architectural Design module. She also teaches history and theory both at UG and PG level, and supervises MARCH, PG dissertations and doctoral research on relevant to her research subject areas.

My research is interdisciplinary and brings theories and methods from the field of cognitive linguistics and distributed cognition into the design study of engagement with heritage. Over the past 7 years, I have collaborated with various cultural institutions in Greece and Scotland, for the design/study of exhibitions and public engagement programmes (AOC Group, Northlight Heritage, Museum of Asian Arts Corfu, etc). Parts of my doctoral research were funded by Edinburgh College of Arts and the Scottish Graduate School of Arts and Humanities.

I am currently interested in nomadic heritages, but also in the design management of contested ones and their possible effects on community empowerment and well-being.
