After 15 years on television as a librarian for films and documentary series, she took over the management of the Association Science et Télévision, a group of 70 films producers. She created for them in 2005 the Pariscience International Science Film Festival at the National Museum of Natural History in Paris. She has managed several non-profit organizations. In 2012, she explored, during a one-year break, from the North Cape to Turkish Kurdistan, the confines of greater Europe.

On her return, she created with Marie-Odile Monchicourt a series of scientific shows, the LabOrigins. Nowadays, she’s President of Traces (group of reflection and action about scientific culture). She has also joined Dominique Falcoz at the TdN-Grand Paris, coordinating a project about the southern suburbs of Paris, to enhance the complexity of territorial identities.
