My research interests range from General Relativity to physics
of the interstellar medium to cosmology. Right now, for most of
the time I work on numerical cosmological simulations, including
(but not limited to) simulating
galaxy formation, formation of supermassive black holes,
and evolution of the intergalactic
medium. I like doing numerics and working with a computer.
This often includes quite sophisticated visualization of the
simulation results, so, I guess, I am a little bit a movie
director as well. Isn't it great to direct a movie where
galaxies and stars are the actors?! And, of course, do not
forget to check out my
If you wish, you can take a look at the list of my published and recently submitted papers.
I also have well-documented free
software for common math problems.

IFRIT is a free open
source 3D interactive visualization tool
written in C++ (there is also an earlier IDL incarnation). It is comparable
to commercial products, although it uses a different philosophy.
Here is my
Cosmological Calculator that you can use to get a few numbers about the flat universe.
