The interdisciplinary nature of her research interests has led to her focus on folklore in classical literature, with particular attention to the supernatural and the monstrous. She has been editor of the journal Preternature: Critical and Historical Studies on the Preternatural (Penn State Press) since 2015, and has served as Associate Review Editor for the Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts for many years.
