She was a research fellow at the Institute for Advanced Study in the Humanites (KWI), and a visiting scholar at the University of Southern California (USC) and the University of Turin. In her Franco-German PhD she analysed the social conditions and the dark side of the help offered to the Jews during National Socialism.
