As a sociologist, my research focuses on the world of mental health, including professional world (more specifically psychoanalysis), care and support practices, new forms of anxiety expression (social withdrawal of youth/hikikomori; children considered agitated).

I published Le divan insoumis. La formation du psychanalyste : enjeux et idéologies, Paris, Hermann, 2006, and, more recently, with C. Figueiredo, N. Vellut et N. Pionnié-Dax, Hikikomori, ces adolescents en retrait, Paris, Armand Colin, 2014.
