Her PhD and much of her subsequent work has focused on the Neo-Assyrian Empire (934-612 BCE) and the study of gender in Mesopotamia.

In her published work, she has adapted and developed approaches from gender studies, social sciences, digital humanities, language technology and history of emotions to gain new perspectives on cuneiform sources.
