Her current research interests are in LARP (Live Action Role Play), the body, power, and identity, the female athlete and the role of sports as a vessel that reflects and reinforces gender norms. Her thesis film Ladies of the Gridiron will follow women from the Los Angeles based professional women's tackle football team, The Quake, as they navigate complex relationships between masculinity, femininity, family commitments, team commitments and job commitments. Projects include: Maid In LA , giving a brief glimpse at immigrant domestic workers in Los Angeles, it captures the thoughts and feelings of two women in the middle of their long days; Art of Burlesque a project melding still photography, traditional ethnographic interviews and music; and an excerpt from her work in progress Ladies of the Gridiron.
