Cohn graduated summa cum laude from Harvard University in 1983 with an A.B. in physics. She did her Ph.D. on superstring theory at the University of Chicago with Daniel Friedan and Stephen Shenker.
Cohn is a Senior Fellow in the Space Sciences Lab at the University of California, Berkeley. Her current research interests focus on galaxy formation and evolution. She has received grants from the Department of Energy and the National Science Foundation.
Between 1989 and 1991, Cohn maintained an electronic mailing list for sharing theoretical physics preprints or "e-prints". In the summer of 1991, Paul Ginsparg volunteered to create an automated system for sharing preprints, which developed into the arXiv.
