Her research interests are opera and the impact of active collaboration in music ensembles, with particular focus on comic operas by Antonín Dvořák, Stanislaw Moniuszko, and Mozart. Her book Musical Humor and Antonín Dvořák’s Comic Operas considers music's role in communicating humor, and analyzes Dvořák’s compositional mastery with these strategies and techniques.
