Her scholarship is largely informed by her work in community-based organizations both in and outside the United States.  Her research centers on faith, healing, and knowledge production in transnational settings. Specifically, she is interested in the ways that practices of service provision shape the moral and theological imagination of practitioners in Faith-Based Organizations in Kenya that receive funding from the United States.
