His research, supported by the NSF, has primarily been in areas of design of experiments and, more recently, big data analysis. He is the author of multiple articles in top statistics journals, and of the Springer Verlag book Orthogonal Arrays: Theory and Applications. He is co-editor of the Handbook of Design and Analysis of Experiments, by CRC Press.
