- Nonlinear Renewal Theory in Sequential Analysis (408 citations)
- Velocity dispersion profiles of seven dwarf spheroidal galaxies (269 citations)

Michael Woodroofe mainly investigates Statistics, Applied mathematics, Combinatorics, Estimator and Central limit theorem. The study incorporates disciplines such as Sequential analysis, Renewal theory, Sequential estimation, Mathematical optimization and Asymptotic distribution in addition to Applied mathematics. The concepts of his Combinatorics study are interwoven with issues in Conditional probability distribution, Random variable, Markov chain and Normal distribution.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Consistency, Dark matter and Empirical distribution function. His research on Dark matter also deals with topics like

- Stars and Astrophysics most often made with reference to Asymptotic theory,
- Radial velocity, which have a strong connection to Local Group. His Central limit theorem study combines topics in areas such as Martingale, Stationary process, Mathematical analysis and Random field.

His primary areas of investigation include Applied mathematics, Estimator, Central limit theorem, Galaxy and Invariance principle. While the research belongs to areas of Applied mathematics, Michael Woodroofe spends his time largely on the problem of Consistency, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Probability distribution, Bootstrapping, Order statistic, Limit and Consistent estimator. His Central limit theorem research incorporates themes from Conditional probability distribution and Combinatorics.

His work in Galaxy addresses subjects such as Stars, which are connected to disciplines such as Data reduction and Spectral line. Michael Woodroofe works mostly in the field of Milky Way, limiting it down to concerns involving Velocity dispersion and, occasionally, Radial velocity. His studies deal with areas such as Satellite galaxy and Surface brightness as well as Local Group.
