Stéphanie Ravillon's past research concentrated on the postcolonial world. The central focus of her work was on questions of identity and self. She also explored the specificity of postcolonial literature, the link between literature and history, the pluralistic heritage which nurtures the imagination of postcolonial writers, as well as the rise of national consciousness, and the transnational phenomenon of creolization. Her dissertation focused on the notion of hybridity in Salman Rushdie's novels.
Her current interest include: contemporary French language, culture and society; second language acquisition; teaching with technology; and translation.
From 2009 to 2015, she was involved with the Research Center on Investment and International Trade ("Centre de Recherche sur le droit des investissements et des marchés internationaux", CREDIMI, University of Burgundy, France) which is affiliated with the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) and translated their annual Chronicle of the Informal Sources of International Business Law.
She's currently conducting research for a textbook in translation (French-English).
