Research Interests:

Ph.D., Tel-Aviv University (1986)


Theoretical Astrophysics


My research interests are in Theoretical and Computational Astrophysics. I work on three main issues: Formation and evolution of galaxies (high-redshifts and local universe), Active Galactic Nuclei (physics of broad-line regions; radiation-driven winds; hydromagnetic winds; stability of MHD plasma), and Formation of supermassive black hole seeds at high redshifts (gravitational collapse, radiation transfer, radiation and thermally-driven winds).
