History of Physics and Astronomy


I am interested in research on history of physical concepts and ideas, especially in pre-modern times and including non-European cultures. The aim of the research is to analyse the intellectual and cultural stimuli and constraints physicists were subject to in various periods of human history, from ancient, through medieval to modern times and in various cultural, religious, and ideological environments, and to explore the interrelationship between these ideas and the world-views prevailing at that time.

Optical Spectroscopy


I have been engaged in research in modern optics and time-resolved spectroscopy for more than 20 years. The work extends from ultrafast spectroscopy to technological applications of luminescence decay time techniques. The first lifetime-based optical sensor ever published was developed in this group.



Travelling and World Heritage


Protecting and safeguarding the world’s cultural and natural heritage and supporting creativity and dynamic cultural sectors are fundamental to addressing the challenges of our time, from climate change to poverty, inequality, the digital divide and ever more complex emergencies and conflicts. (www.unesco.org)
