Research Interests

My major research interests are in the field of many-body quantum physics. This includes Nuclear Physics, Atomic Physics and Condensed Matter Theory. The main results are: Precise calculation of parity violation effects in heavy atoms, Prediction of a huge enhancement of weak interaction effects in neutron scattering, Theory of parity violation in nuclear fission, Theory of the magnetic superconducting pairing in the Neel state of a strongly correlated quantum antifferomagnet.

Current study is concentrated mainly on new types of quantum phase transitions in strongly correlated electron systems. This field has attracted a huge interest in recent years because of its close connection to the problem of high temperature superconductivity and because the technological progress allows to create novel materials with highly nontrivial quantum properties.

The Superconductivity Project : Magnetic and charge dynamics of underdoped high temperature superconductors.
