Professor Peel's research has attracted competitive funding from various organisations, including the Australian Research Council (ARC), VCCCAR and the United States Studies Centre. In the field of climate change law, Professor Peel has held several ARC grants: to examine the regulatory framework for responding to climate change in Australia (2009-2011 with L. Godden and R.

Osofsky); and on legal mechanisms for promoting corporate energy transition (2016-2019, with H. Osofsky and B. McDonnell). Professor Peel has also been a Visiting Scholar at the Berkeley Law School's Centre for Law, Energy and Environment (UC Berkeley, California) and also at Stanford Water in the West, Stanford University (2012-2015).

She is regularly invited to take part in expert panels at conferences and to deliver keynote addresses, such as the 2016 Mahla Pearlman Oration in Environmental Law. Professor Peel takes an active interest in fostering early career researchers in her field, including her PhD students.
