His research interests are Native American prehistory, ethnography and rock art, and the cognitive neurosciences of religion.

Hays-Gilpin's current research, undertaken in collaboration with the Hopi Cultural Preservation Office, explores Hopi history and culture from prehistory to present through cross-media comparison of style and iconography, visual and verbal metaphors, and gender arrangements. Her most recent book, Ambiguous Images: Gender and Rock Art, won the 2005 Society for American Archaeology Book Award.
