Raziskovalna dejavnost

Raziskovalno se ukvarja z biologijo podzemeljskih habitatov, njihovo biodiverziteto, biogeografijo in ekologijo. Trenutno je vpeta v raziskave podzemeljske biodiverzitete in biogeografije epikraških nevretenčarjev, ekologije plitvih podzemeljskih habitatov, njihove favne in evolucije, ter pretoka organskega ogljika v krasu.
