My field of research is accelerator and beam physics, a discipline rich in complex non-linear dynamics phenomena, theoretical and computational challenges. We design, build, and use the state-of-the-art experimental equipment for exploration of beam physics questions and provide tools for inquiry into the fundamental aspects of nature. Relativistic electron (and sometimes positron) accelerators are also known as the brightest human-made light sources in the widest range of photon energies.
Some of the topics in my research include photoinjectors, space charged dominated beams, linear and non-linear beam dynamics, next generation x-ray sources such as energy recovery linacs and free-electron lasers.
