Research interests

Modelling of the nebular enviroments; determination of the Lyman continuum spectra, physical characteristics and chemical composition of HII regions and planetary nebulae; developing the optimized photoionization modelling (OPhM) method of the nebular objects; developing the multicomponent photoionization modelling method (MPhM) of the dwarf galaxies with active star formation processes on the base of the chenodynamical simulations of their evolution; determination of the primordial helium abundance and its enrichment during stellar chemical evolution of matter; investigation of stellar wind bubbles insight HII regions surrounding the starburst regions using Lyman continuum spectra obtained from OPhMs of surrounding HII regions.
