The central theme of Angharad's research is domestic commercial law. She teaches and researches on areas of commercial and corporate law, especially personal property, secured financing, insurance, and corporate insolvency issues.

She has since completed her doctorate ‘An exploration of the legal minefield of retention of title clauses’. The thesis provided a comprehensive critique on the law governing retention of title clauses and explored the conceptual and practical problems for those parties seeking to rely on the clauses under the present regime.

Her current research focuses on corporate insolvency law, examining both the Insolvency Act 1986 and the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020.
