Her research is focused on the origins, evolution, and ecology of modern humans and Neanderthals. Much of this work has focused on reconstructing ecology and behavior of these peoples by studying their patterns of hunting and butchery as well as analyzing the mobility of their prey species through isotopic analysis. She is a project director for excavations at the late Pleistocene and early Holocene site of Arma Veirana ( https://chei.ucsd.edu/arma-veirana-cave/ ) in northwestern Italy. Her fieldwork has also included projects in North America, France, Spain, Bulgaria, Morocco, and South Africa.
