Stephen Redding's research interests include international trade, economic geography, and productivity growth at the firm and industry level.

Recent work has examined the interaction of comparative advantage and heterogeneous firms' responses to international trade; the importance of multi-product firms for productivity growth and the effects of trade liberalization; and the contribution of agglomeration forces to the spatial distribution of economic activity within and across cities.
