She teaches the history, politics, cultures, societies and literatures of France and the French-speaking world (particularly North Africa and the Caribbean) as well as comparative literature and transnational studies, and has recently started developing teaching on the Philippines.

Her research covers areas such as women, religion, culture, ethnicity and rights, particularly although not exclusively with relation to the Muslim world and international Muslim diaspora; women in Australian, French and Philippine society and politics; transnational feminist theory and activism; women, globalisation and militarisation; lesbian-feminist theories and politics.
