Her research focuses on the interconnections between fine and applied arts, and her book manuscript in progress, Transatlantic Tapestries and the Marketing of Modernism, explores the close relationship between modernist painting and French tapestry in the decades following World War II. Wells was a member of the Textile Project at the University of Zurich and the first Postdoctoral Fellow in the History of Craft at Virginia Commonwealth University.
