In the National Museum of Natural History, Paris, she leads a multidisciplinary group of bioarchaeologists working on the adoption of farming in the Old World. Her personal research is focused on the beginnings of husbandry in Europe, contacts between early farmers and late hunter-gatherers in this area, and the long-term effects of species introduction to new territories. She has been a member of diverse scientific panels in France and abroad and coordinated several projects on the diffusion of domesticates and commensals in Europe and the adaptation of husbandry strategies to new environmental conditions.
