Mokslinę karjerą pradėjo tyrinėdama nevietinių rūšių ekologinį poveikį vandenų ekosistemoje. 2009 metais apginė disertaciją apie dreisenų funkcinį vaidmenį Kuršių marių dugno buveinių formavime. Dalyvavo povandeniniuose darbuose Baltijos jūroje ir Lietuvos vidaus vandenyse, invazinių rūšių lauko ir laboratoriniuose tyrimuose, ekologinės būklės rodiklių kūrime ir testavime. Nuo 2012 metų pradėjo taikyti molekulinius metodus invazinių rūšių tyrimuose ir vystyti ekologinės genetikos sritį Klaipėdos universitete.
