He has received National Science Foundation funding to support his work.

Previously, Ho served as president for the Society of Empirical Legal Studies and continues to serve on its board of directors. He is coeditor of the Journal of Law, Economics, & Organization and an associate editor of the Journal of Empirical Legal Studies. He serves on the committee on research of the American Association of Law Schools and the executive committee of the AALS Law and Social Science Section.
