Claudia's research lies at the intersection of performance, technology, and gender. Her PhD dissertation examines what she terms 'virtual women': female-gendered new media technologies that operate in both virtual and material realms. She argues that these virtual women operate within a triangulated performance structure that hinges on the interaction of three interrelated performance practices: the performance of gender, race, and labour.
Claudia is also passionate about the role of the artist-scholar, emphasising the relationship between practice and research in her work and the ways in which these disciplines inform and complement one another.
