Her doctoral dissertation focuses on investigation of the recently documented ballcourts in the understudied region of Nejapa in southeastern Oaxaca. Stoll's research interests include the Mesoamerican ballgames, community identies and social networks, the archaeology of landscapes, ritual and religion, and exploring Oaxaca's Prehispanic history. She plans to continue conducting research in Nejapa in order to highlight the region's important role in the political development of Oaxaca.
