She has conducted field research on property rights, conflicts over access to natural resources, environmental history, emerging environmentalisms, nature and nation, transnationalism, and the political economy and cultural politics of development and landscape transformation in Tibet. She has also worked on the cultural politics of identity and race in the Tibetan diaspora, and on interdisciplinary projects investigating the vulnerability of herders to snowstorms and the determinants of grassland degradation in Tibet. Her newer work concerns the politics of Chinese infrastructural development.
