Dr. Iglesias-Ríos's research interests are in migration, labor exploitation, forced labor, modern slavery and health inequities. Her previous research assessed how patterns of violence and coercion affect the mental health of female and male trafficking survivors including children, adolescents and adults. She also sought to understand how the living and working conditions during trafficking affect the mental health of survivors. Dr. Iglesias-Rios is the Co-Investigator of the Michigan Farmworker Project, a community-based participatory project that assess the working and living conditions of migrant and seasonal farmworkers in the state of Michigan. The focus of the research is to investigate indicators of labor exploitation that involve psychosocial, occupational and environmental exposures and complex contextual conditions (social, economic and physical milieu) of farmworkers.
