She has studied and continues to study aspects of motherhood as a psychosocial position. Her first book, Creating Oneself: Agency, Desire and Feminist Transformations, appeared in 2012. Her second book, Vulnerable Futures, Transformative Pasts: On Vulnerability, Temporality and Ethics, which received a grant from the Israel Science Foundation and appeared in 2017, addresses vulnerability as a characteristic of social life.
