Theoretical Astrophysics


My research interests are in Theoretical Astrophysics. I work on three main issues: Galactic Dynamics (stability and evolution of disk galaxies; starburst galaxies; stability of rotating self-gravitating stellar and fluid systems), Active Galactic Nuclei (physics of broad-line regions; radiation-driven winds; hydromagnetic winds; stability of MHD plasma), Accretion Disks (stability of winds in active galactic nuclei and cataclysmic variables)
