Before that, she was a research associate on the History of Jesuit Emotions project at the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions. There, she worked on theories of affects and their instantiations in the works of early modern French Jesuit Nicolas Caussin.

Prior to her Jesuit investigations, Raphaële researched French Calvinists as the Associates Research Fellow at Newnham College from 2009 to 2012. She completed her doctoral dissertation in the French department at MML in 2011. She had started it as a Knox scholar at Trinity College in 2005.
