In 2007, she was nominated at the Institut Universitaire de France. In the beginning of her carrier, she was mainly interested in numerical cognition in typically developing children and children with dyspraxia. At the end of the nineties, she started studying working memory development with Pierre Barrouillet at the Université de Bourgogne where they published together a first paper in JML in 2001 and then a first version of the TBRS model in 2004 published in JEP:G.

Apart from her work on working memory, she is still interested in numerical cognition, especially on counting subitizing and transcoding.
