His main scientific interests concern the discovery and high precision timing of millisecond radio pulsars and the discovery of extragalactic fast radio bursts (FRBs). He is the theme leader of the Dynamic Universe for the ARC Centre of Excellence for All-Sky Astrophysics (CAASTRO) and the chair of the Collaboration for Astronomical Signal Processing and Electronics Research (CASPER).
