Specific area of activity

 

There are several fields of my professional experience and interests.

My basic research experience in atomic physics, spectroscopy and photochemistry resulted in step by step involvement in atmospheric research and in the problems of air pollution and air quality.  I have experience in applied research related to specific RF discharge atomic spectra sources in UV and VUV. 

In parallel I made efforts to be professionally involved in democracy development and in the issues of sustainable development on municipality level from one side and technologies for sustainable development from other side. 

Tutorship, teaching and research training of students (supervisor of MSc and PhD thesis) in above mentioned fields in particular and  human resource development as a whole is my next field of serious activities.

 

I have up to 80 various scientific articles in my scientific career and some 40 participations in international scientific conferences during the last 12 years when Soviet Union collapsed and “Iron Curtain” was taken away. There are some latest  main  publications and conferences  listed below:
