His prime research of interest is actuarial science that cover topics in copula models, dependencies, post-retirement asset management, and some related to risk measures and capital allocation. In recent years, his research work has evolved around the applications of data science and statistical modeling to actuarial and insurance problems. The quality of his research has been recognized through awards that include the E. A. Lew Award, the Halmstad Memorial Prize, the Hachemeister Prize, and most recently, the Robert I. Mehr award.
