Doina was editor of "Altering practices: Feminist politics and poetics of space" (2006) and "Architecture and participation". She is co-founder of atelier d'architecture autogérée (aaa), an interdisciplinary network that develops strategies and tactics for research and intervention into the city.

Doina considers herself as a 'nomadic subject' in academia, trying to use her multicultural background and experience to multiply the relationships between places, persons and fields. She is an academic who is aware of knowledge politics, an engaged practitioner and an active citizen who dreams about other possible worlds.
