Stereotactic / CyberKnife radiotherapy forms a key part of her research programme. Other predominant research interests involve functional imaging for lung cancer and its utilisation for radiotherapy treatment, and the integration of novel biological therapies into radiotherapy treatment for lung cancer.

She has also applied these interests to lymphoma and has a sub-specialist interest in head and neck lymphoma.
