Broadly, his research examines the social structure and dynamics of religion in the United States, with a focus on three specific areas. The first explores the relationship between religion and science. A second examines innovations in how religion is organized in the United States, especially in regards to the growth of so-called parachurch organizations. The last area of research looks at crimes against religious congregations.

He has published two books, over two dozen scholarly articles, and has been awarded two research grants from the National Science Foundation. His research has also been featured in a number of media outlets, including USA Today, CNN.com, ABC News, The Huffington Post, DiscoverMagazine.com, LiveScience.com, ScienceDaily.com, and the Research on Religion podcast.
