Our group studies a broad range of astrophysical phenomena using
observational data from ground based and space facilities and by
developing new theoretical methods for the interpretation of these
observations. Our research interests include the astrophysics of
compact objects (stellar and supermassive black holes, neutron stars and
white dwarfs), properties and evolution of galaxies, and the behaviour
of matter in the extreme conditions in the vicinity of compact objects.
Our group also builds instruments for optical Astronomy and manages the
