Flores's book, Latina Teachers: Creating Careers and Guarding Culture, won the 2018 Outstanding Contribution to Scholarship Book Award from the Race, Gender and Class Section of the American Sociological Association. Her research on Latina professionals, in particular Latina teachers, has been published in several venues such as Qualitative Sociology, City and Community, Ethnography and Gender, Work and Organization. Her research agenda centers on the social mobility patterns of Latinas/os into the middle class, and their workplace experiences in the white-collar world, especially teaching and medicine, and how Latinx cultures emerge in their fields. She is a co-principal investigator of a nearly $3 million National Science Foundation funded project that seeks to improve STEM success among underrepresented students. Her new book project is on Latina/o/x physicians and is tentatively titled, The Weight of the White Coat: Gender, Race and Culture in the Lives of Latina/o Physicians.
