Based broadly within nineteenth and early twentieth century France, Aubrey's research interests specifically target the period between 1900 and 1918. Her preliminary dissertation research explores the transformation of the Grand Palais into a military hospital in World War I. Within this topic, she is investigating the intersection of art and medicine, particularly through the media of sculpture and photography, as well as the history of museum design and modes of display.

In addition to her work at the Graduate Center, Aubrey is also the Administrator of the Design Department at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. In her role, she has been closely involved in the development and implementation of the new brand strategy and visual identity and in the design and implementation of the museum's robust exhibition program.
