MAIN RESEARCH INTERESTS
- My research activity deals with the theoretical calculation of properties of atoms and small molecules, especially in excited and highly excited states, and of the results of their interaction with short intense laser pulses.
- These activities have resulted in the publication of more than 60 papers in American and European Scientific Journals.
Courses in Numerical Analysis and Quantum Mechanics at TCPI/NHRF and at the University of Toledo U.S.A. Supervision of Ph.D. students.
68 publications in refereed journals. More than 1100 references.
