Since 2001, Ginsparg has been a professor of Physics and Computing & Information Science at Cornell University.[3]

He has published physics papers in the areas of quantum field theory, string theory, conformal field theory, and quantum gravity. He often comments on the changing world of physics in the Information Age.[4][5][6] [7] [8] [9]


He has been awarded the P.A.M. (physics astronomy math) Award from the Special Libraries Association,[10] named a Lingua Franca "Tech 20", elected as a Fellow of the American Physical Society, awarded a MacArthur Fellowship in 2002,[11] received the Council of Science Editors Award for Meritorious Achievement, and received the Paul Evans Peters Award from Educause, ARL, and CNI.[12] He was a Radcliffe Institute Fellow in 2008–2009.[13]
