His scientific works included a collaboration with Roger Penrose on gravitational singularity theorems in the framework of general relativity and the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, often called Hawking radiation.

He was a vigorous supporter of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.
