In his research, Dr. House has explored many aspects of the fields of computer graphics and visual perception. His current research thrust is investigating how to make visualizations more effective from a perceptual point of view. He is best known for his work in the area of physically based modeling, championing interacting-particle approaches to the simulation of cloth, drapery and other flexible materials. He and David Breen compiled the book Cloth Modeling and Animation. Early in his academic career, House was known as an authority on brain mechanisms for depth vision in anuran amphibians (frogs and toads).
