He has published research in nuclear physics, elementary particle physics, and laser physics. In recent years, he has helped to develop computer-based tools for learning introductory physics and astronomy and helped pioneer the use of classroom response systems and the "flipped" classroom model at UCSB.

Dr. Gellar als has a strong emphasis on education, and he received the Distinguished Teaching Award at UCSB in 2003.
