Klein's theme of her research agenda is the use of multi-level, social-ecological approach in the prevention or reduction of tobacco use, with a particular interest in understanding the role of policy, systems and environmental change (PSEC) strategies and their influence on population health behavior, particularly tobacco use. Her work has been influenced to a great extent by the social-ecological model, and its five levels of influence on human behavior: individual, interpersonal, organizational, community, and policy. Given the focus on primary prevention of tobacco use, the population groups of greatest interest in her work are the age groups of youth and young adults. Most recently, she has expanded this focus to include other vulnerable populations at high risk for tobacco use, including low-income individuals and underserved rural residents.
