Her interests extend to identity themes drawing on professional experiences in rural townships in far-north QLD, the Northern Territory and south-east QLD. Carroll is engaged with research, education, consultation and design practitice, manifest in three key areas of architectural research and consultancy. Carroll has engaged in research across design related fields: Aboriginal architecture, Indigenous-led housing management, policy, architectural identity themes, public facilities and civic space.

She was an Indigenous Design Place researcher (2017- March 19) and the recipient of an ARC Discovery Indigenous Award (2014-2016). Along with Professors Jane Hunter, Paul Memmott and Mark Moran, she developed the project; Defining the Impact of Regionalism on Aboriginal Housing and Settlement which sought to analyse, quantify and improve our understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander housing needs. It developed a regional knowledge-base about needs assessment, by creating an interactive mapping interface sharpening focus on the blurred picture of the true extent of Indigenous household crowding, tenant demand, housing stock status and regional governance. The establishment a comprehensive knowledge-base through the development of innovative search, retrieval and visualisation services, the project generated a single online data model integrating qualitative and quantitative data with text based publications.
