Her research has been presented at the annual meeting of the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP), the Pacific Coast Research Conference (PCRC), and the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC).

Dr. Conoyer teaches courses in school psychology including cognitive assessment of children and adolescents, psychopathology of children and families, as well as undergraduate courses including psychopathology and psychological tests and measures.
