She is particularly interested in developing interdisciplinary projects on urban anthropology and heritage, and in experimenting with new fieldwork methods. Her recent research has been supported by the Swiss Network for International Studies and the Swiss National Science Foundation. Her last publication Porter le temps. Mémoires urbaines d'un site horloger, awarded with the Koos Bosma Prize in Planning History Innovation 2022, focuses on watchmaking town planning of Le Locle and La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland.
