Danielle studied the impact of country governance on the sustainability of the banking sector in emerging economies and analyzed corporate governance effects on bank profits during the pandemic in Gulf Cooperation Council countries. Additionally, Khalife examined psychological and demographic predictors of cryptocurrency investment during crises in the MENA region, studied the influence of investors' sentiments on S&P 500 price levels using deep learning models, and assessed the impact of financial literacy and self-control on individual financial performance during the Lebanese crisis. Her research also delves into intermarket analysis, workforce diversity's effect on innovation in family firms, and the application of artificial intelligence in pricing Asian and barrier options.

Overall, Khalife's research is driven by a desire to understand and address financial challenges faced by individuals, businesses, and the banking sector in Lebanon and the broader MENA region. She leverages quantitative methods to provide insights and potential solutions for navigating complex economic and financial landscapes.
