Research Scientist

My main research interest is in collective x-ray emission phenomena (such as inner-shell x-ray lasing, x-ray superfluoresecence, self-amplification of radiation from electron beams in crystals) and their applications. In my research, I use theoretical modeling (that combines methods from quantum optics and classical electrodynamics) to achieve quantitative description. Another area of my expertise is x-ray diffraction form crystal structures.
