She has published numerous articles and book chapters relating to her work on Messiaen, Dutilleux, Debussy and Jolivet as well as on the writings and musical activities Alejo Carpentier. She is currently preparing the first study of André Jolivet in English and a monograph on French-Latin American musical literary interactions, both forthcoming with Ashgate. She speaks regularly at international music conferences and has given many public lectures, most recently at the Royal Festival Hall, Barbican Royal College of Music and Somerset House in London.
