Professor Flores' research emphasizes the contributions of Catholic and U.S. Latino/a theologies to notions of justice, emotion, and aesthetics as they relate to the common good within plural socio-political contexts. Her research in applied ethics addresses issues of immigration, human trafficking and labor exploitation, consumption and globalization, race and ethnicity, family ethics, and U.S. Latino/a politics.
She has presented papers at the annual meetings of the Catholic Theological Society of America (CTSA), the Society of Christian Ethics (SCE), and the Academy of Catholic Hispanic Theologians of the United States (ACHTUS). Her published work appears in the Journal of the Society of Christian Ethics (JSCE) and Feminist Catholic Theological Ethics: Conversations in the World Church. She is a contributor to the Catholic Theological Ethics in the World Church Forum, the Millennial Journal, and Catholic Moral Theology, a blog featuring work from North American Catholic moral theologians. Her theological writing has been featured in America Magazine and on the Washington Post On Faith Blog.
