Lexi's  research has covered a range of areas related to scientometrics, bioethics, public health, and global health.

Her dissertation research focuses on patterns of citation between legal and scientific public health academic articles using an approach that is interdisciplinary in its methodology, theory, and topic. She is interested in the use of science in the law and how the difference in epistemology between legal and scientific thinking can affect research patterns.

Her analysis involves quantiative and qualitative methods including network analysis, multidimensional scaling, semi-structured interviews, and thematic interpretive analysis.

Her dissertation was funded by the National Science Foundation through the Science of Science Policy Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grant program.
