Mendoza, trained as an anthropologist, researches music and dance in the Americas, particularly in Peru and the rest of the Andean region, Quechua-speaking people's forms of knowledge, and the Quechua language revitalization processes.

Tull noted Mendoza’s impressive record of research, her administrative leadership experience — she is chair of the Department of Native American Studies and its graduate program — and long tenure at UC Davis, starting in 1994.
