Professor Rayfuse researches and teaches in the area of Public International Law in general and more specifically in the Law of the Sea and International Environmental Law. She publishes widely on issues of oceans governance, protection of the marine environment in areas beyond national jurisdiction, and the normative effects of climate change on international law. She has special expertise in high seas fisheries, climate change and the oceans, and in polar oceans governance and has also published on other areas of international law including state responsibility, the law of treaties, international humanitarian law, use of force, international crimes and international dispute settlement. She is on the editorial or advisory boards of a number of international law journals, is a member of the IUCN Commission on Environmental Law, and Chair's Nominee on the International Law Association's Committee on International Law and Sea-Level Rise.

In 2006 Professor Rayfuse became the first Australian woman to attempt to ski from the North Pole to Canada, using her North Pole Challenge 2006 to raise awareness of the need for international and national regulatory responses to climate change and to raise money for the Law School's Mooting and Internship programs.
