Research interests

Studying accretion disks around compact objects has been my primary research interest. Recently, I have been mostly involved in developing radiative fluid dynamics codes in general relativity and applying them to simulating black hole (BH) accretion disks. Earlier on, I developed theoretical models and provided stationary and time-dependent numerical, one-dimensional, solutions of relativistic, transonic and advective BH accretion disks. Other points of my interest were related to outflows of mass and energy from such objects, the G2 cloud approach to the Galactic center, ejection mechanisms of relativistic jets, thermal stability of accretion disks, and black hole population synthesis. Below I list, in reverse chronological order, the most important projects I led or took part in.

Below you can find detailed summary of my current and previous research as for the Fall 2013.
