Research activities:

  1. High temperature-high pressure chemistry of electronically conducting fluids: electronic and microscopic structure, electron localization and electronic phase transitions in expanded fluid metals, metal-molten salt solutions and liquid alloys;
  2. Rapidly quenched ionic liquids: transition from ionic to metallic glasses;
  3. Interfacial phase transitions in fluids with short range interaction: wetting and prewetting transitions, surface freezing;
  4. Electrodeposition from molten salts: growth kinetics and 1D-2D-3D phase formation studied with nanometer resolution (electrochemical - STM).
