Her research interests include the relation between metropoles and colonies and the forms of conflicts - whether armed or otherwise - leading to independences: political mobilization, repression, guerrilla and counter-guerrilla warfare, as well as the way colonial History is - or isn't - written in former colonies and metropoles.
