Stuart L. Shapiro spends much of his time researching Astrophysics, Neutron star, Gravitational wave, Astronomy and General relativity. His Astrophysics study typically links adjacent topics like Angular momentum. His research integrates issues of Stellar rotation, Rotating black hole and Differential rotation in his study of Neutron star.

His Gravitational wave study combines topics in areas such as Instability, Gravitation and Mass ratio. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of General relativity, narrowing it down to issues related to the Gravitational collapse, and often Schwarzschild metric, Gravitational singularity, Naked singularity and Cosmic censorship hypothesis. His Stellar black hole research focuses on subjects like Compact star, which are linked to Future of an expanding universe, Gamma-ray burst progenitors and Massive compact halo object.
