My research interests are all aspects of neutrino physics and neutrino-related beyond the Standard Theory physics and the corresponding implications for collider phenomenology and in astrophysics and cosmology. More specifically, my research interests include:

i) possible mechanisms of neutrino mass generation and their phenomenology;
ii) theory and phenomenology of neutrino oscillations in vacuum and in matter;
iii) the problem of the nature of massive neutrino (which can be Dirac or Majorana particles) and the related issue of total lepton charge non-conservation;
iv) Dirac and/or Majorana violation of CP symmetry in the lepton sector and their possible implications;
v) leptogenesis scenario of baryon asymmetry generation;
vi) all aspects of the problems of the type of the neutrino mass spectrum and of the absolute neutrino mass scale;
vii) the lepton flavour non-conservation and its possible manifestations;
viii) the problem of the origin of the observed pattern of neutrino mixing and of neutrino masses (symmetries?) and, more generally, the flavour problem in particle physics;
ix) the discrete flavour symmetry approach to neutrino mixing, masses and to the flavour problem.

The preceding list is by no means exhaustive.
