Marta Lucianis Fachgebiet umfasst die Siedlungs- und Bestattungsarchäologie in Mesopotamien, Syrien, der Levante, Anatolien und der Arabischen Halbinsel.

Sie leitet zahlreichen innovativen Projekten darunter das gemeinsame Archäologische Projekt in Qurayyah, Saudi-Arabien, der Northwest Sulaimaniyah Survey und Ausgrabungen in Chemchemal in Irakisch-Kurdistan sowie Untersuchungen an den Funden aus Nuzi im Harvard Museum of the Ancient Near East und spielt damit eine entscheidende Rolle bei der Förderung unseres Verständnisses der antiken Zivilisationen. Gender-Archäologie und die Stärkung der Rolle von Frauen in Westasien sind weitere Schwerpunkte ihres Engagements.

Marta Luciani ist Mitglied des Vienna Anthropocene Network (https://anthropocene.univie.ac.at/members/#c487484), und des Forschungsschwerpunkts "Visuelle Kulturgeschichte - Kulturen und Medien des Visuellen".
