Her research specialism is women in early Indian Buddhism, a subject on which she has published many journal articles, books and book chapters over the last 12 years. She has also received several grants and awards to develop her research, including awards from the Arts and Humanities Council of Great Britain, Numata, and The Spalding Trust. Dr Collett has delivered many academic papers and public lectures on her research over the last 15 years, having been invited to many countries around the world to lecture on the topic, including, for example, a public lecture at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, a conference paper for the Buddhism and Orientalism conference at the University of Toronto and a public lecture on women in early Buddhist inscriptions as part of an ancient world lecture series for the York Festival of Ideas (UK). She is currently co-editor, with Peter Harvey, of Buddhist Studies Review, a journal of the UK Association for Buddhist Studies, an organisation for which she served on the committee for many years.
