Bonnie's research interests lie in the area of property law, in particular the idea of exclusivity of ownership. Her Ph.D. thesis focussed on the rules regulating the acquisition and protection of ownership of corporeal moveable property. She has recently published a paper investigating the application of criminal penalties in the case of unauthorised occupation of land.

She is also interested in the intersections between private law rights and environmental and climate change laws, for example in the context of emissions trading and the development of new energy technologies.
