She is conducting her research at Laboratoire des Sciences du Numérique de Nantes (LS2N) in the Real Time System team. Her main research interests include Scheduling, Fault-tolerance and Dynamic Power Management technologies for real time embedded applications. She is now studying the issue of scheduling tasks under real-time constraints in a device such as sensor node that uses renewable energy to supply it. She has more than 150 papers published in international journals and conferences. She was the editor of the books Real-time Systems Scheduling (Elsevier, 2014) with volume 1 Fundamentals and Volume 2 Focusses. She was the co-author of the book Energy Autonomy of real-time systems (Elsevier, 2016). She was the Chairman of the French national Project Cleopatre ” Composants Logiciels sur Etagères Ouverts Pour les Applications Temps-Réel Embarquées” (2002-2005). She was the program committee co-chair of the 17th International Conference on Real-Time and Network Systems (2009). Since 2011, she was elected member of the French National Council for Universities.
