Kleio’s current interdisciplinary research spans moral psychology, sociology, and normative virtue with descriptive ethics. Her research conceptualizes a moral psychology for virtue ethics, as an inter-processual self (IPS). She studies the integrity of human being and action in IPS that is premised upon the unity of knowledge and action and its theoretical underpinnings in philosophy and moral psychology. Applied articles aim to reorient policy, institutional governance and practice towards an understanding of service for the common good that supports a virtue epistemology in life spheres (education, governance and politics et cetera).  Her monographs and published books are in 2016 Challenges of Capitalism for Virtue Ethics and the Common Good (E. Elgar), and Differentiation and Integration in Adult Development (Springer). Kleio’s research outputs include articles in the Journal of Business Ethics, Ethics in Science and Environmental Politics, Frontiers of Neuroscience, The Leadership Quarterly and the Academy of Management Learning and Education, among others.
