His primary scientific interests are in Classical mechanics, Theoretical physics, Cosmology, Ekpyrotic universe and Astrophysics. His Classical mechanics research includes elements of Random measure, Big Crunch, Statistical physics and Mathematical physics. His Big Crunch research integrates issues from Big Bounce and Cyclic model.

His Theoretical physics study combines topics in areas such as Space, Measure problem and De Sitter universe. His work deals with themes such as COSMIC cancer database, Dark matter, Observable and Gravitation, which intersect with Cosmology. Neil Turok interconnects Astronomy and Cosmic microwave background in the investigation of issues within Astrophysics.

- Ekpyrotic universe: Colliding branes and the origin of the hot big bang (1349 citations)
- Halo Formation in Warm Dark Matter Models (849 citations)
- Cosmic Evolution in a Cyclic Universe (668 citations)

Neil Turok mainly focuses on Theoretical physics, Astrophysics, Classical mechanics, Cosmic microwave background and Particle physics.

Neil Turok focuses on Classical mechanics, Quantum cosmology, Path integral formulation, Theoretical physics and Big Crunch. His research in Classical mechanics is mostly concerned with Scalar field. His research investigates the connection between Scalar field and topics such as Geodesic that intersect with issues in Inflation.

His work carried out in the field of Quantum cosmology brings together such families of science as Mathematical physics, 1/N expansion and Gauge theory. His Path integral formulation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Open quantum system and Semiclassical physics. The concepts of his Big Crunch study are interwoven with issues in Ultimate fate of the universe, Cosmological principle, Physical cosmology, Cyclic model and Cosmology.
