Chantelle's interests lie in the broad intersection between culture, the body (including cognition), social dynamics and knowledge. Her research has looked into: how the cultural training of practitioners influences the content and form of biological knowledge they create; the challenges and choices interdisciplinary scholars face (approached from the perspective of disciplines being their own particular culture), and; how culture becomes inscribed onto the body (specifically as related to ballet and non-Western health practices like yoga). The most representative publication that pulls together these areas of interest is "Explaining Knowledge Pluralism; the intertwining of culture and materiality," in Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part C: Studies in History and Philosophy of Biological and Biomedical Science, volume 84 (Dec 2020), 101339 (https://doi.org/10.1016/j.shpsc.2020.101339).
