Professor Albert joined Hofstra in the fall of 2004, with practice experience as a corporate and securities attorney and teaching experience at law and business schools. She was previously on the faculties of Fordham Business School and Widener Law School, teaching business law topics including corporate, agency and partnership law, mergers and acquisitions, securities law, and interviewing and counseling, as well as legal writing.
Her research interests focus on business organization and international and domestic securities law issues.

Her interests are focused on both lofty scholarly pursuits and the Wiggles, a group of 4 annoying Australians who sing and dance and basically fascinate her daughter.
