Main research fields - a new measurement technique for electrokinetic potential of hydrofil colloidal particles, current polarized solid membrane ion-selective electrodes, system theory of the analytical chemistry, development of coagulation control model in water clarification processes.

Additional skills and training
Cofounder of the Aqua-Concorde Water Analysis and Technology LLC,1992 and head of the R&D Laboratory. Main research profiles are research for new analytical methods, developments of analytical instruments, developments of process control instrumentation of water and wastewater technologies. 1992-93 leader of the research team which discovered the new spectrometric source of the electrolyte cathode discharge (ELCAD). This innovation provided the first direct metal analysis method for monitoring of the municipal and industrial waste waters.

Recent activity focusing on the following fields: general model of glow discharge plasmas, fast measuring principle for corrosivity of fluids, extremely stable and sensitive microcoulometric detector for halogenid ions, isotope effects in the electroanalytical methods.
