Falli holds a PhD in Architectural and Urban Morphology, and an MSc in Advanced Architectural Studies from The Bartlett, University College London (UCL). In her years in UCL, Falli has been an active member of the Space Syntax Laboratory, working on evidence-based approaches to spatial and urban design, street network analysis, the study of urban form, and empirical studies. Her PhD research, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), investigated the urban transformation and street micromorphology of the London terraced house and the Manhattan row house urban settings from the late 19th century till present. Alongside, she has worked as a coordinating editor in the Journal of Space Syntax published by the Bartlett, and consulted London local authorities on policy planning.

Following the completion of her PhD studies, she continued working as EPSRC Research Fellow at the Bartlett School of Architecture in UCL. Her post-doctoral research developed new character assessment and delimitation methods of historical urban areas, focusing on UNESCO historical urban landscapes. In 2017, she led under the patronage of UNESCO the organisation of HUL Forum, an international networking initiative on urban heritage and sustainable development goals in historic urban landscapes.

Falli has completed her first degree in Architecture at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). She is a registered member of the UK Architects Registration Board (ARB) since 2015 and of the Technical Chamber of Greece since 2009. She is also an Associate Fellow of the UK Higher Education cademy (HEA).
