Her work deals with topics including the history of education and intellectuals, the history of colonization, the history of women and gender and the emergence of a feminine elite linked to colonial education.

A Doctor in contemporary history, she defended in 2008 a thesis entitled «Vietnam 1918-1945, gender and modernity: the emergence of new perceptions and experimentations.” (http://colo­ni­sa­tion-ensei­gne­ment.en….). Her presentation at salon Saigon will be an adaptation of this thesis.
