2007 - Fellow of the Royal Society, United Kingdom

2004 - Fellow, The World Academy of Sciences

- Quantum mechanics
- General relativity
- Epistemology

His scientific interests lie mostly in Theoretical physics, Classical mechanics, Cosmology, General relativity and Mathematical physics. The concepts of his Theoretical physics study are interwoven with issues in Dynamical systems theory, Einstein, Gravitational singularity and Initial singularity. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cosmological model, Spacetime, De Sitter universe and Scalar.

His work carried out in the field of Cosmology brings together such families of science as Universe, Differential geometry and Speed of light. His General relativity study incorporates themes from Orthonormal basis, Tetrad and Theory of relativity. His Mathematics of general relativity research includes themes of Problem of time, Cosmic censorship hypothesis and Two-body problem in general relativity.

- Dynamical systems in cosmology (899 citations)
- A class of homogeneous cosmological models (704 citations)

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Theoretical physics, Classical mechanics, Cosmology, Mathematical physics and General relativity. In his research, Isotropy is intimately related to Universe, which falls under the overarching field of Theoretical physics. His Classical mechanics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Metric expansion of space and De Sitter universe.

His Mathematical physics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Friedmann–Lemaître–Robertson–Walker metric, Differential geometry and Weyl tensor. He interconnects Gravitation, Gravitational field and Theory of relativity in the investigation of issues within General relativity. His research in Covariant transformation intersects with topics in Curvature and Perfect fluid.

George F. R. Ellis mainly investigates Theoretical physics, Cosmology, Classical mechanics, General relativity and Epistemology. His Theoretical physics research incorporates elements of Arrow of time, Friedmann equations, Metric expansion of space and Friedmann–Lemaître–Robertson–Walker metric, Universe. His study in Cosmology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Inflation and Cosmological constant.

He combines subjects such as Differential geometry, Black hole and De Sitter universe with his study of Classical mechanics. The General relativity study combines topics in areas such as Gravitation, Gravitational wave and Theory of relativity. George F. R. Ellis has researched Epistemology in several fields, including Adaptive selection and Top-down and bottom-up design.
