Research Interest

The main research interests are concentrated in linear and nonlinear dynamics of laser light in various settings, from bulk and anisotropic optical media to periodic photonic lattices and discrete systems, developed in singular and topological photonics. Particular focus is on spatial optical solitons, twisted light, optical vortices, and optical angular momentum.
