He is an expert in the study of the universe’s oldest light, the cosmic microwave background, which he uses to investigate the origin and evolution of the universe. In 2014, amidst the purported detection of a long-sought signal heralding the "spark that ignited the Big Bang', Keating was busy co-teaching a course at UC San Diego entitled "Poetry for Physicists", with Pulitzer Prizewinner Rae Armantrout. His first book, Losing the Nobel Prize was ranked a Best Science Book of the Year by Science Friday, Physics Today, Forbes Magazine, and selected as an Amazon Editors' Pick as a Best Nonfiction Book. Keating's second book, Think Like a Nobel Prize Winner, is based on interviews from his top ranked podcast, The INTO THE IMPOSSIBLE Podcast. Think Like a Nobel Prize Winner distills the life-lessons of 9 Nobel Prize winners into a self-help guide for STEM professionals and beyond. Keating produced and co-narrated the first-ever audiobook by Galileo Galilei: The Dialogue on Two World Systems. His fellow narrators include Carlo Rovelli, S. James Gates, Lucio Piccirillo, CERN Director Fabiola Gianotti, and Nobel Prize winner Frank Wilczek.
