In 2013-2014, she follows the IRCAM Composition and Computer Music Curriculum, under the direction of Hèctor Parra. She writes, as part of the Cursus, 미로 [mi:ro] for bass flute and electronic.
She obtained her CNSMDP composition prize in 2015 with the mention of Très Bien. On this occasion, Aven for mezzo-soprano, ensemble of 13 musicians and an electronic, was created, based on the poem Sensation by Arthur Rimbaud.
Her works have been performed notably by the Nouvel Ensemble Moderne (NEM) of Montreal, the Orchestra of Laureates of the Paris Conservatoire (OLC) and the Duo Jatekok. 
Her work of composition is constructed from abstract, visual and sound images inspired by everyday life and which are then transcribed musically.
