Sue Kelly vystudovala egyptologii na Macquarie University v Sydney. Ve své vědecké kariéře se snaží osvětlit přínos a vliv staroegyptských žen na společnost prostřednictvím výzkumu jejich společenského postavení. Její plánovaná kniha Unveiling Female Social Power (c. 3080–2180 BCE) bude zkoumat ženské tituly z raně dynastického období a období stavitelů pyramid a nabídne nový pohled na jejich roli. Na základě studia statistických údajů zpochybňuje tradiční pohled na zapojení žen do egyptské společnosti.

Nedávno zahájila své působení v rámci Marie Curie Actions Fellowship na Českém egyptologickém ústavu pod vedením doc. Hany Vymazalové. V rámci svého pobytu rozšíří svůj chronologický průzkum staroegyptských žen na První přechodnou dobu s projektem „The Impact of Political and Climate Change on Women’s Agency: A Social Power Analysis“ (IPOCCWWA Grant No 101148700). Tento projekt si klade za cíl identifikovat veřejné aktivity, vliv, práva či autoritu královských i nekrálovských žen, což umožní komparativní analýzu s jejím stávajícím datovým souborem a sledování změn a výkyvů způsobených politickým a sociálním vývojem v První přechodné době.
