Amit Kumar's research interests, in significant part, are driven by his interest in the area of mitigation of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

One major problem that mankind faces is climate change and one of the main reasons for it is the unrestrained large-scale emission of greenhouse gases. There is little data on the value of GHG credits required for renewable energy technologies to be competitive with fossil fuel energy. Dr. Kumar's research is an effort to fill this gap.
