His primary scientific interests are in Black hole, Theoretical physics, Quantum mechanics, Classical mechanics and Mathematical physics. His Black hole study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Gravitation, Quantum electrodynamics and Brane. His Theoretical physics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Fermion, Quantum gravity and Supergravity.

His work deals with themes such as Instability, String, Non-critical string theory, Curvature and Event horizon, which intersect with Classical mechanics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Spacetime and Entropy in addition to Mathematical physics. Gary T. Horowitz works mostly in the field of Extremal black hole, limiting it down to topics relating to Black hole thermodynamics and, in certain cases, Charged black hole, Hawking radiation and Nonsingular black hole models.
