She employs a wide range of methods in the analysis of the source material combining the fields of philology, theology, liturgical studies, comparative literature, literary criticism, source analysis, cultural studies, history of intellectual culture and history of Christian thought.

For the last number of years, the majority of her research has been concentrated on medieval Irish apocrypha and eschatalogy, in particular as a member of The Irish Biblical Apocrypha Project and the De Finibus Project.
