Nielsen's research focuses on methods development and applications in identifying genes underlying complex traits, including gene expression responses and molecular signaling between hosts and pathogens. She has been engaged in various projects to develop genomic resources for non-model species. She recently published “Networks Underpinning Symbiosis Revealed Through Cross-Species eQTL Mapping.” Genetics 206(4): 2175-2184, 2017. She has attended workshops in teaching STEM, including a multi-day workshop in Active Learning taught by Rebecca Brent and Richard Felder. Drs. Brent and Felder are pioneers in learner-centered approaches to teaching.
