Her areas of interest and knowledge specialization include: child welfare practice and policy; decolonizing and anti-oppressive practices and pedagogies; community-based participatory research; Indigenous epistemologies and research methodologies; program evaluation; and social work field education. Dr. Nutton has worked with child welfare systems in Canada and the United States since 2005, and has engaged in community-based social justice work in the UK and the United States.
