She has also spent time as a visiting faculty or visiting scholar at Duke University, Polish Academy of Sciences, University of Notre Dame, and Indiana University, South Bend. Her research interests are in the field of bio-inorganic chemistry, specifically on characterization of the structure and reactivity of metal ions bound to extracellular metal trafficking proteins.
