Lexi's most recent work is in Clinical Ethics with the Wellstar Health System. She is interested in the intersection of law, ethics, culture, and practice surrounding surrogate decision-making, confidentiality, and truth-telling. She is also interested in metrics for the professionalization of clinical ethics.

Her previous research has covered a range of areas related to bioethics, scientometrics, public health, public helath law, public health emergency preparedness, and global health. Her dissertation research focused on contact tracing as a public health tool and the difference between scientific academic research, legal academic research, and on-the-ground practice.

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

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