Before embarking on her subsequent studies, Natasa undertook a 10-month-long EVS program in Northern Italy in the fields of social exclusion, mental health, and the cultural and linguistic integration of refugees and immigrants. Returning to academia, she acquired three postgraduate degrees: (1) a Master of Arts in ''Society, Science, and Technology'', awarded by ESST, (2) an anglophone, interdepartmental Master of Science in ''Science and Technology Studies - STS'' awarded by the National University of Athens, and (3) a Master of Science in ''Philosophy and History of Science and Technology'' by the same university. During her postgraduate studies, she delved deeper into her research interests in emerging technologies and matters of gender, writing two additional research theses on ''Picturing Big Data: an STS-based approach'' and ''Women in Academia and the Glass Ceiling: the Greek Case''.
