Hsiao's areas of special interest include improving the delivery of diabetes care and helping people with diabetes manage daily self-care. She has also studied how health management organization policy can help members control diabetes as well as the impact of high glucose levels after bone marrow transplantation.

While completing her doctorate, she studied the effects of a mutation found in patients with Alexander disease, a rare neurological disorder.
