Isabella's research interests lie in the formation of early Greek intellectual culture, particularly Aeschylean tragedy and presocratic philosophy. Her dissertation, Language and Reality in Early Greek Thought, examines the relationship between language and the non-perceptual aspects of reality in the works of Parmenides, Heraclitus, and Aeschylus. She is also interested in Ennius and Seneca the Younger.
