Her fields of specialization are macroeconomics and econometrics. However, her experience with IDRC, CIRPÉE and international organizations (World Bank, International Monetary Fund, GTZ, ...) in Senegal where she lived for five years, allowed her to develop new areas of interest such as the analysis of poverty. His research focuses on poverty and inequality patterns, growth decomposition methods, education, and more recently on the impact analysis of economic policies on poverty and inequality.
