Her work is multidisciplinary, drawing on fields such as economics, political science, sociology, public health, and systems' dynamics.

Outside of work, she is on the boards of Heartland Alliance, a human needs and rights organization; the Chicago Committee of Human Rights Watch; the Chicago Committee of the African Women's Development Fund; and the Young Women's Leadership Charter School.
