His research focuses on programming languages, and he is the principal developer of the optimizing Chez Scheme compiler and run-time system which were initially released in 1985. Together with Daniel P. Friedman, he has long advocated the use of the Scheme language in teaching computer science. He is now professor emeritus, having retired from IU to join Cisco in 2011.
