Zoe has built a research programme focused on the dual themes of marine ecology and science communication. She is particularly known for her research on cephalopods and "weedy" ecology, as well as using biominerals to unlock the environmental and biological histories of animals. Zoe's aim is to build knowledge and develop solutions to address today's pressing environmental challenges. Zoe also trains scientists about how to boost the readership and readability of their scientific papers, presenting invited seminars both locally and internationally (see her interview in Nature about How to write a first class paper). For her commitment to science and excellence in science communication Zoe has received 15 awards: including a 2017 SA Young Tall Poppy Award and Thinkable's inaugural Peer Prize for Women in Science.
