Oberlander described three main strands in his research: intelligent labelling; affect in communication (e.g., in research on personality types in emails with Alastair Gill); and multimodal reasoning and communication (e.g., in research with Keith Stenning on diagrammatic reasoning).
In March 2016 Oberlander was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, Scotland's National Academy for science and letters, where he served as a member of their Young People's committee.
