If her main interest concerns the rare earth spectroscopy and especially the frequency conversion processes and energy transfer, several works were conducted on different subjects (energy diffusion in disordered materials and second harmonic generation in organic molecules). Actually her researches are focused on rare earth doped nanocrystals for medical imaging.
