Tripathi works in distributed systems with specific focus on problems pertaining to novel programming paradigms, system security, fault-tolerance, and scalable architectures. His current research is on Blockchain systems. Some of his recently completed projects include the development of a framework for parallel programming of large-scale graph problems on cluster computers, techniques for scalable transaction management in key-value based data storage systems, and a generative programming framework for secure collaboration systems. He teaches courses on operating systems and distributed systems.
