She discovered the two main-belt asteroids 1930 Lucifer and 1983 Bok. She took photographic plates of comets over 25 years, attempting to obtain consistent data for the magnitudes of the comet nuclei. In 1975, she co-discovered Themisto (Jupiter XVIII), one of the moons of Jupiter. The asteroid 1657 Roemera, was named in her honour.
