Currently, she is responsible for a research team on urban dynamics, whose research is broadly focused on city problems, in particular people's mobility, urban systems, transport policy, and urbanism. She is also the head of a research project on governance and financing of public transport in the city of Algiers. This project consisted of interviews with various actors of the system, and a large household survey on mobility and transport using an electronic tablet for the first time in the center. This survey aims to get to know mobility practices, have a vision of the inhabitants’ aspirations in terms of transport, and evaluate different forms of governance of public transport through satisfaction indicators and other specific indicators.
