Her research interests include twentieth century Latin American literature, post-dictatorship literature, recent generations of writers, and novels published in the 90s in Chile, Argentina, and Perú. In her doctoral dissertation entitled: Sujeto, convivencia y comunidad en tres narrativas de fines del siglo veinte: Salón de Belleza de Mario Bellatin, El Nadador de Gonzalo Contreras y El Dock de Matilde Sánchez, Bonacic explores and analyzes the struggles of characters affected by the isolation of impersonal cities, various forms of social persecution, and dysfunctional family lives.
