My research interests

My main fields of research are theoretical nuclear and high energy physics. I am also interested in some problems in strongly correlated electron systems (e.g., graphene), some aspects of mathematical physics, and physics of cold atoms and compact stars.

Large fraction of my research deals with gauge theories in general, and with quantum chromodynamics (QCD) in particular. I am fascinated by the fact that, despite intensive studies and different approaches, a complete understanding of the theory of strong interactions is lacking. In my work, I use quantum field theoretical methods to study the dynamics and properties of hot and/or dense quark matter.

My research on dense quark matter also stimulated my interest in the physics of compact stars which may have quark cores in their interior. Here the main goal is to work out the most promising signature properties of different quark phases that could have an unambiguous imprint on the observational data from stars.
