The main field of activity since 1991 - studies of neutron stars and properties of their matter, including: atomic structure and radiative transitions in strong magnetic fields; equation of state and kinetic properties of dense, strongly coupled plasmas with or without strong magnetic fields; thermal and electrical conductivities and radiative opacities of envelopes of compact stars.
