Vohra's research in mechanism design focuses on the best ways to allocate scarce resources when the information required to make the allocation is dispersed and privately held, an increasingly common condition in present-day environments. His work has been critical to the development of game, auction and pricing theory - for example, the keyword auctions central to online search engines - and spans such areas as operations research, market systems and optimal pricing mechanisms. In addition to more than 70 articles and working papers, he is co-author of "Principles of Pricing" (Cambridge University Press, 2012) and author of "Mechanism Design" (Cambridge University Press, 2011) and "Advanced Mathematical Economics" (Routledge, 2004).
