Phillips' primary research interests center on theoretical issues in the sociology of religion. Specifically, he is interested in the ways that cultural and religious pluralism affect the construction and maintenance of social solidarity within religious congregations. He has a forthcoming book that investigates this topic based on ethnographic data collected from two different religious communities and has also published several articles that extend and critique popular rational choice theories of religious participation. Phillips' first book examined the nexus between religion and deviance. Almost all of the empirical data he uses are based on trends and developments within Mormonism, but recently his focus has shifted to evangelical Protestantism in the antebellum U.S.

Through focus group interviews with 58 women between the ages of 18 and 25, Wilder's study employs grounded theory and discourse analysis to investigate how young black women talk about and understand colorism in their everyday lives. An intersectional analysis of race, class, gender, and skin tone, this projects aims to explore the lived experiences of internalized racism that continues to impact the black community in the post-Civil Rights era.
