Areas of Expertise and Interest
My research involves mainly quantum field theory, gravitation, and cosmology.
Recent projects include:
1) stringy Born-Infeld electrodynamics - a way to measure the string coupling constant by means of light-deflection observations.
2) Evaporation of quantum-corrected Reissner Nordstrom black holes.
3) Non-singular black holes - black holes with regular cores supported by nonlinear EM fields.
4) Accelerated observers and non-thermal vacuum states.
5) loop quantum gravity cosmology.
