Research and Teaching Interests

I continued my research activities in the field of atomic and molecular collision theory. A number of papers were published in the Physical Review and the Journal of Physics (London), while a number of abstracts were submitted to national and international meetings. At the current time I am involved with six nationally and internationally funded research projects: • DOE/Fusion Energy Sciences/Grant 1 (Jan 2011 - Dec 2013) • DOE/Fusion Energy Sciences/Grant 2 (Sept 2011 - Aug 2013) • NSF/Atomic Theory/Grant (Sept 2010 - Aug 2013) • NSF/CCF Program/Grant (Apr 2011 - Mar 2014)
