Research Interests


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 gallery!

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. It has no copyright of any kind, so feel free to do with it whatever you want.

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.
