Anne Davis' recent research is in Particle Cosmology. Her current work is on modified gravity theories, such as the chameleon model and related scalar-tensor theories of gravity. She has studied the full cosmological evolution of the chameleon, considered solar system constraints, laboratory constraints and cosmological constrains. She has shown that chameleons could be detected in future Casimir force type experiments. She has also worked on inflation and extra-dimensional theories.
