Jabbari is interested in control theory, particularly in robust and nonlinear control systems. His research efforts are focused on saturation control and control applications for combustion and fuel cell research.

He is currently investigating design of controllers for systems with limited actuator capacity, with emphasis on active and hybrid control systems for earthquake engineering.

In other projects, Jabbari is collaborating with Drs. Derek Dunn-Rankin and G. Scott Samuelsen in developing more effective techniques for combustion control and dynamic modeling and control of fuel cells.
