General Research Interests:
General l
iquid physics (integro-differential equations, perturbation theories, phase transitions, interface properties);
Liquid crystal physics (phase transitions, interface properties, confined liquid crystals, ferronematics, random field, cholesterics, surface waves,stability, hydrodynamics, liquid crystals--non-mesogenic (aerosils, colloids, polymers, carbone nanotubes) mixtures;
Thermodynamics and Statistical Physics (phase transitions, ergodic and non-ergodic systems, stability).

For the results of the researches I received the Romanian Academic Prize for physics in 1986.
