Dr. Flores' work focuses on preserving endangered stories, especially those archived only in oral literatures.  Beyond her professional interests, she is intrigued by the spiritual dimensions of the human experience, by the relationships between food and health, and by the resilience of parts of Chamoru culture. Currently, through poetry, she is working through two preoccupations: the rituals surrounding Chamoru funerals and the continuing power and authority in certain enclaves of Chamoru womanhood in persistent resistance to or negotiation with Western male-centric systems of value and behavior. She enjoys swimming in the Pacific Ocean, long walks at sunrise or sunset, and of course, reading, researching, and writing.
