Eric Greenwood works in various sub-fields in high energy physics, namely in particle physics, cosmology and quantum gravity. To study quantum gravity one must work in a regime where both quantum physics and gravity are equally important, such as in the early universe and in black holes. To date, most of his research program has focused on alternate ways of constructing a consistent form of quantum gravity by introducing the most naive way to quantize gravity. This prescription has allowed for the discovery of interesting dynamical behavior in the formation of black holes via gravitational collapse. He is also interested in alternative ways to describe the apparent accelerated expansion of our universe without the need for dark energy.
