Her fields of study are International Politics and Comparative Politics, although her interests extend beyond these areas to include questions of international gender politics and the negotiation of national identities.

Dr. Nowakowski teaches a variety of undergraduate and graduate courses at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies, including "Gender and International Relations," "Human Rights Research Design and Writing," and "The European Union." She has also taught special topics courses for the Gender and Women's Studies Program, including "Gender and Russian Identity in Historical Perspective," and "Writing Gender Around the World." Forthcoming articles include: "Vladimir Putin and the Body Politic: The Coalescence of Corporeality and Temporality in Putin's Russia" and "Performativity and the Negotiation of Masculinities in Late Soviet and Post-Soviet Film."
