Her Diploma thesis  entitled “Redefining the rural space: pathways in Fodele” (Kanaraki E., Constantopoulou A., Ntogou E., 2021) attempts to revive the rural space based on the identity that it has formed over time. Starting from the level of geography, a method of spatial analysis is being developed.
