His primary areas of investigation include Astrophysics, Astronomy, Supernova, Light curve and Sky. His study on Astrophysics is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Asteroid. His Astronomy study incorporates themes from Object and Radiative transfer.

His Supernova research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Redshift, Astrostatistics, Spectral line, Photosphere and Dark energy. His study explores the link between Light curve and topics such as Radius that cross with problems in Stellar mass, Drop and Star formation. The various areas that he examines in his Sky study include Declination, Galactic plane and Stellar classification.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A kilonova as the electromagnetic counterpart to a gravitational-wave source (430 citations)
  • Galactic reddening in 3D from stellar photometry – an improved map (311 citations)
  • A brief visit from a red and extremely elongated interstellar asteroid (224 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Astronomy
  • Milky Way
  • Astrophysics

Richard J. Wainscoat mainly investigates Astrophysics, Astronomy, Sky, Supernova and Photometry. His study in Redshift, Stars, Astrometry, Galaxy and Telescope is carried out as part of his studies in Astrophysics. His work on Active galactic nucleus is typically connected to Extinction as part of general Galaxy study, connecting several disciplines of science.

When carried out as part of a general Astronomy research project, his work on Asteroid and Comet is frequently linked to work in Class and Resonance, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Sky study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Observatory and Rotation. His studies examine the connections between Supernova and genetics, as well as such issues in Dark energy, with regards to Cosmic microwave background.
